    Saving treatment time in direct posterior procedures.

    A laborious cusp-by-cusp build-up of a posterior tooth’s occlusal anatomy can now be replaced by a one-step procedure using high-viscosity bulk fill materials like 3M Filtek One Bulk Fill Restorative.

     

    Building up a posterior tooth’s occlusal anatomy, cusp-by-cusp, can be a laborious and time-consuming task. To simplify this process, it is now possible to replace the numerous steps required with a single procedure using high-viscosity bulk fill materials. This has been successfully demonstrated with 3M Filtek One Bulk Fill Restorative, which offers easy sculptability and a great quality surface. Using this material, the patient’s natural occlusal surface structure was restored by following StyleItaliano’s the essential lines technique. A desirable optical integration was achieved, as well as significant treatment time savings for the practitioner due to the simplicity of the protocol.
