About the Case A cusp fracture on the lower second premolar brought this patient to the office. The large amalgam restoration was removed, and secondary decay noted. Once the existing amalgam and decay were removed, the remaining tooth structure indicated a very large, very challenging Class II restoration was required.

Traditionally, a restoration of this size would require an incremental placement technique in which several time consuming layers would be required. In addition, this adds to the chance of contamination of the tooth, or contamination between layers of composite. Bulk placement of Filtek Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative allows this restoration to be completed in one increment, making the procedure more time-efficient.

The 3M Difference
Completing a restoration of this scale can be challenging. Filtek Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative enables one-step placement up to 5mm for fast and easy posterior restorations.
