Restoratives with high compressive and flexural strength

posterior composite resin for class I and II restorations

Posterior Restoration

Save time without compromising on strength or aesthetics.

Posterior restoration solutions

Simplify your posterior treatments with 3M's Filtek Bulk Fill range of flowables and restoratives.The compressive strength of 3M posterior dental composite resins is designed to withstand daily stresses placed on teeth and reduce the risk of tooth fractures, while increased opacity improves aesthetics in posterior restorations. Reduced polymerisation shrinkage minimises the incidence of post-operative sensitivity in patients and ensures a dental filling that lasts. With excellent cavity adaptation and controlled flow mechanism for easy handling, procedures for class I and II dental restorations are made simple as well.

Discover how 3M posterior dental solutions are designed to improve workflow efficiency and patient outcomes for the most challenging restorations:

  • filtek single step placement feature
    Improved efficiency

    Achieve a streamlined workflow with the 3M™ Filtek™ Bulk Fill Posterior composite resin, featuring single-step placement and an easy delivery system that effectively fills deep cavities, eliminates voids, and can be light cured up to 5mm. 

  • filtek nanocomposite depth of cure feature
    3M nanotechnology

    Control the stages at which a composite is opaque or translucent with the nanotechnology in 3M Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative. It is more translucent before curing, allowing for 4-5 mm depth of cure. 

  • filtek reduced shrinkage stress feature
    Reduced shrinkage stress

    3M Filtek Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative is composed of a unique blend of methacrylate monomers. This resin system reduces polymerisation shrinkage stress for enhanced patient comfort and lasting dental restorations.

Dental class restorations

  • Dental class 1s posterior composite resin restorations
    Class I

    The key to a successful Class I restoration is a composite that sculpts easily and is able to mimic the grooves of healthy dentition. 3M Filtek Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative​ is viscous and flows-on-demand under pressure (capsule dispensing).

  • Dental class 2s posterior composite resin restorations
    Class II

    Speed up complex Class II restorations without compromising on strength and aesthetics using 3M Filtek Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative​​. Its easy one-step placement and excellent cavity adaptation simplifies the procedure. Opaque and available in 5 shades, achieving natural-looking restorations is made easier.
