Flowable and Regular Bulk-Fill Composites: A Comprehensive Report on Restorative Treatment
Sebold, Maicon / Lins, Rodrigo Barros Esteves / André, Carolina Bosso / Martins, Luís Roberto Marcondes / Giannini, Marcelo
This article reports a comprehensive restorative treatment using bulk-fill composites and discusses their properties and clinical performance. A 20-yearold man sought dental treatment due to the dark shade of his smile and multiple old amalgam fillings. Based on clinical and radiographic findings, and the patient's demand for tooth-colored fillings, treatment comprised enamel microabrasion and in-office dental bleaching, followed by the replacement of amalgam fillings by bulk-fill composites. Bulk-fill composites exhibit modifications in the filler size and shape or in the chemistry of monomers that allow them to be applied in thicker layers (4 to 5 mm), creating opportunities for simpler, faster, and more-efficient clinical procedures, as seen in the present report.
