Rapid treatment is often needed – and yet the quality and price must also be right. With its light-curing, posterior tooth, bulk fill restorative material x-tra fil, and its universal bonding agent Futurabond U, VOCO offers an ideal combination that guarantees basic treatment at the best price/performance ratio, and in a timely manner. This solution is also a proven alternative to amalgam fillings. Dentists worldwide have successfully performed more than 13 million restorations using x-tra fil.*
This restorative material was especially conceived for therapy in the posterior region (classes I and II) as well as for core build-ups. Thanks to the option of applying increment thicknesses of up to 4 mm in a single work step, as well as the short curing time of only 10 seconds, both patient and dentist benefit from a very short chair time. Thus, x-tra fil is especially well-suited for treatment of non-compliant patients.
Aside from its fast and easy handling, x-tra fil also stands out with its high depth of cure and low shrinkage. The excellent physical properties have already been demonstrated in several independent studies.** Furthermore, the product’s high translucency produces a chameleon-like shade adaptation to the surrounding tooth substance, meaning the patient obtains not only a long-lasting and unrestricted masticatory load-bearing result, but also an aesthetic one.
Total basic treatment is optimally rounded off in combination with the dual-curing universal adhesive Futurabond U. In addition to its practical handling in a hygienic SingleDose, Futurabond U also offers an outstanding range of application options in terms of the indications and the choice of etching technique. Whether self-etch, selective-etch or total-etch: Futurabond U allows practitioners to freely select how they wish to condition the dental hard tissue, depending on the individual clinical situation and their personal work preferences. Thus, Futurabond U covers such a broad spectrum of applications that no additional bonding system is required in practice.
