Bulk-fill materials by Dentaltown staff

Dentaltown Magazine

by Dentaltown staff

The category of filling materials commonly referred to as “bulk fill” has many varieties, but most can be divided into one of two major groups: light-cured and dual-cured.

The depth of cure for light-cured materials can vary from product to product, so it’s imperative to respect the limitations of each. With that in mind, though, most such materials operate at a depth of cure that will satisfy a single increment of material in an average prep. Dual-cured materials offer the promise of cured material at any depth, but there can be some aesthetic and strength trade-offs that should be considered.

This month we gathered a summary of the most often-mentioned materials in this rapidly growing category.
