    A more natural looking smile.

    Amalgam is a mixture of metals, including mercury that can be used to fill cavities. Over 50 years ago, 3M commercialized natural-looking resin composites that do not contain mercury as an added ingredient. That’s something to smile about.

    Everyone knows the uneasy feeling when it’s time to go to the dentist. You’re hoping your sweet tooth hasn't turned into a problem tooth. You especially don’t want to walk away with a mouth of silver fillings, also known as metal amalgam fillings. Luckily for you and your sweet tooth, 3M has developed a more natural looking restorative.
    Our 3M scientists first commercialised natural-looking resin composites almost 50 years ago. Since then, we have continued to be a trailblazer in restorative materials that do not contain mercury as an added ingredient. Most recently, our 3M™ Filtek™ Supreme XTE Restoratives were designed for enhanced quality, ease of use and aesthetics.
    We love healthy smiles and that is why we keep pushing the limits of dental innovation. Our 3M ESPE Dental Team has been named “Most Innovative” by the Anaheim Group for a decade running. And we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Now that's something to smile about.
