Filtek™ Supreme XTE Universal Restorative

3M Filtek Supreme style italiano styleitaliano

The StyleItaliano method is designed to mimic the three dimensional appearance of natural teeth where the chroma comes from within the dentine core and shines through the translucent enamel layer. Using the dentine and enamel opacities of 3M™ Filtek™ Supreme XTE Universal Restorative,

recipes were created following this natural aesthetic design. Because the enamel layer modifies the colour of the dentine core, its thickness has been standardized in the recipes – for 3M™ Filtek™ Supreme XTE Universal Restorative, 0.5 mm turned out to be the ideal value for anterior restorations.

The Right Composite in the Right Place

Dr Gregory Camaleonte

For the button try we used B1 and A1 3M™ Filtek™ Universal Restorative composite and some 3M™ Filtek™ Supreme XTE Universal Restorative (enamel shade A3E and translucent shade CT for the composite masses).

The button try is validated by cross-cross-polarisation (Polar Eyes, Bioemulation). 3M™ Filtek™ Universal shade B1 is chosen and will be combined with 3M™ Filtek™ Supreme XTE Universal Restorative shade A3E and CT to create aesthetically integrated fillings.

CASE 2: Stabilizing complex cases with single shade composites

Backfilling with 3M™ Filtek™ Supreme Flowable Restorative composite is done with the help of a anatomical posterior matrix once the buccal situation is ideal. 3M™ Filtek™ Supreme Flowable Restorative has syringe that creates virtually no bubbles on dispensing the composite.

Pre-finishing of the composite is extremely helpful before starting the construction of the neighbouring teeth.

Corrections can be done either with packable composite or with flowable. In our experience, small defects are more easily corrected with flowable, while bigger defects are easier to correct with packable composite.

We believe that conservative dental procedures don’t have to compromise on aesthetics. Our goal is to teach dentists a simplified composite layering technique, using only two shades, that any dentist can carry-out, using our well researched shade recipes.
