Solve six of your biggest challenges.
With rising patient expectations, dentists must create aesthetic restorations without losing efficiency. By using Filtek Universal Restorative to overcome these six common challenges, you can simply create beautiful, lasting results.
1 Match VITA and blend to natural dentition.
Filtek Universal Restorative, which is a true nanocomposite, helps create natural-looking restorations with efficiency and simplicity, using eight specially designed shades, plus an XW (eXtra White), that blend to natural dentition.
All eight Filtek Universal designer shades plus an Extra White (XW) cover 100% of the 19 VITA classical and bleach shades.1
2 Match the white shade of bleached teeth.
With a whiter, extra white (XW), Filtek Universal Restorative eliminates the need for another speciality shade, simplifying the matching process and giving your patients an extra white smile.

3 Worry less about shrinkage and stress.
Filtek Universal Restorative has lower shrinkage stress than other composites, meaning you can worry less about stress. 3

4 Cover dark stains.
Filtek Universal Restorative allows you to improve overall quality of the restoration with the versatile pink opaquer specifically designed to mask metal and dark tooth structure.5
The increase in average patient spend on cosmetic procedures from 2015 to 2017.6
5 See composites on a radiograph.
Instead of guessing between tooth structure and composite material, Filtek Universal Restorative helps you easily identify composites at recall.7
200-250% or greater considered most appropriate for composites.8
6 Warm with confidence.
Filtek Universal Restorative capsules can be warmed up to 70°C/158°F for one hour, by doing so this lowers extrusion force and doesn’t change physical properties.9
Warming lowers capsule extrusion force by 75-80%.10
Dentists have trusted 3M for over 50 years to create more than a billion happy smiles around the world. Make the right choice for your patients and your practice. Filtek Universal Restorative helps your patients smile with confidence.
