Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill ®

Bulk, Sculpt & Cure! Tetric EvoCeram® Bulk Fill is a unique nano-hybrid composite material developed specifically for the fast, efficient, “bulk placement” of direct posterior composite restorations.

Bulk The material’s smooth consistency facilitates excellent adaptation to cavity walls allowing for “bulk placement” without the need for flowable liners or additional dispensing equipment; while stress relievers minimize shrinkage force during polymerization.

Sculpt Anatomy can be sculpted immediately after placement without the need for a final “capping” layer due to the natural shade blend and the well-balanced filler composition and physical properties.

Cure The patented “Polymerization Booster” provides a fast, deep and more complete depth of cure for 4 mm increments.

Polymerization Booster The Patented Polymerization Booster enables Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill to be the only bulk fill material that can be placed in one increment while maintaining natural esthetics. Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill doesn’t rely on a high level of initiators or on a highly translucent material for a full 4 mm depth of cure, so handling and esthetics are never compromised. The patented Polymerization Booster incorporated into the photo-initiator system offers greater reactivity to curing lights as compared to traditional initiators, allowing 4 mm increments of composite material to be completely cured in just 10 seconds (eg, bluephaseŽ G2 @ 1,200 mW/cm2).

Natural Esthetics Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill features a level of translucency similar to enamel (approximately 15%), creating a more natural shade blend with the surrounding tooth structure. The esthetics of Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill are further enhanced by the matched refractive indices of the fillers, monomers and nano-color pigments. Fillers and pigments disappear within the monomer matrix (as seen to the right), providing a harmonious integration of the restoration with the natural dentition (eg, Chameleon effect).

Stress Reliever Patented Shrinkage Stress Relievers are integrated into the filler composition and provide the lowest combination of polymerization shrinkage and shrinkage stress when compared to competitive bulk fill materials. This allows Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill to achieve superior marginal integrity.

Optical Effect of Matched Refractive Index As composite materials polymerize, monomer chains begin to cross-link, resulting in a force which can cause the material to pull away from cavity walls. Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill contains a new patented filler technology developed specifically to reduce shrinkage force. These fillers, known as Shrinkage Stress Relievers, offer a lower modulus of elasticity, providing flexibility to absorb these forces. The result is superior marginal integrity, specifically in situations where composites are being polymerized in bulk.

A patented additive incorporated into the photo-initiator system, minimizes the effects of ambient light (e.g. operatory light). This is important when working in the posterior region where light is necessary for accurate placement. Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill maintains a sculptable consistency until polymerization with a curing light is initiated.

Highly Esthetic The three universal shades; IVA, IVB and IVW (white shade for deciduous fillings or light-colored teeth) demonstrate enamel-like translucency allowing restorations to blend seamlessly with surrounding natural tooth structure. Just three shades provide the widest range of shades available when compared to the other bulk fill materials, leaving no compromise on shade selection.
