The Composite for MI Dentistry: Filtek Supreme Ultra Universal Restorative

For 6 years, I have been placing composite restorations using Clark Class II cavity preparations, which are smaller on the inside and bigger on the outside. They are created with long infinity edge margins, which have better resistance to ditching. To be successful, however, this treatment demands a specific technique for composite placement, as well as the use of an ideal composite. I have found 3M 's Filtek Supreme Plus flowable restorative and its paste counterpart, Filtek Supreme Plus universal restorative to be very well-suited. Many flowable composites are...

EXCELLENT ESTHETICS & STRENGTH & HANDLING

Filtek Supreme Ultra Close to Perfect
I have been using the Filtek products for several years now. Overall I like the performance. The material itself can't be beat. It's chemistry ensures that it will hold up over the long haul, and it polishes like enamel. However handling the material has a few challenges. First, it always seems to be when you absolutely need it to stick to the instrument, it falls off in the patient's mouth. Second, when you want it to fall off the intstrument, it sticks like glue. Third, when curing, voids form as the material shrinks, which when doing an anterior can be problematic. I routinely have to go back and cut into anterior composites to then bond more to fill in voids before I finish procedures. But despite these issues, I'll keep using the material for its properties after it's cured.

best composite on the market imo
It is easy to handle, polish, and comes with a ton of shades to match any case. It doesn't hurt that 3m is a name you can trust. I have used a few generations of this product and am very satisfied. I would highly recommend.

Filtek supreme ultra universal restorative
I like the dentin shades. The enamel shades are good but feel they could be improved. The composite is polishable, but the luster does not seem to last. The restorations wear very well.

Best Composite Ever
I have used a number of composites over the years but Fitek Supreme takes the cake. Composites have come a long way. Does anyone remember Adaptic? Hard to work with,ugly,unpolishable and stained. Those happen to be it's good points. However my Dad has an Adaptic Restoration that I placed on the distal of #11 to this day....placed 30+ years ago. Filtek Supreme Ultra has great handling characteristics. It is easy to place, sculptable,good consistency,very polishable and overall a pleasure to work with. I would rate color matching ability as very good. Seems to wear well and holds a good polish. There may be other composites out there that are very good but I find it hard to believe there are any better. Not at least as of 2013 !

Excellent material
Filtek Supreme has been very reliable for me for several years. I like that it is stiff enough for easy placement, but not too stiff to get it in place. When I try to smooth it into the cavosurface of the tooth it blends nicely.

FILTEK SUPREME CHARACTERISTICS
I HAVE BEEN USING THIS PRODUCT SINCE ITS RELEASE. I HAVE FOUND IT TO HAVE THE BEST HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF MAJOR COMPOSITES I HAVE USED. IT ADAPTS NICELY WITHOUT STICKING TO INSTRUMENTS. IT IS EASY TO MANIPULATE AND DOES NOT SLUMP. IT GIVES AMPLE WORKING TIME. I TRIM WITH FINE DIAMONDS AND TRIMS EASILY AND POLISHES TO A HIGH LUSTRE. OVERALL I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.

Great handling and esthetics
Used for both posterior and anterior indications, this is my go to composite!

Great esthetics and color choices
Supreme Ultra is a go-to choice for a composite restoration where esthetics matter - like everywhere! With a variety of opacities and color ranges, getting a toothlike layered effect is straightforward. It can be a bit sticky and stringy during application (especially enamel shades) but is worth the fussing for a good look. Polishes well and holds its finish. Bulk fill with something else and put this on top in big posterior restorations and everyone will be happy.

Composite of choice especially for anteriors
Filtek Supreme has exactly the properties I demand for an anterior composite material: excellent handling--not too sticky, not too thick Great assortment of shades, very true to the shade guide; Polishes beautifully. Did the "blind test" with a competitor and I was able to pick my Filtek no problem.
