Introduction to the case

Creating a color blend for Class V’s can be frustrating. Give this technique a try. As an added bonus you will realize a stronger bonded restoration.

Using SureFil SDR flow as the first layer over the entire surface of the prep creates a low stress strong bond to dentin. The SureFil also creates a semi translucent layer which is covered by the Filtek Supreme Ultra “Body” layer. The result is a blended composite that reflects light much like the surrounding tooth structure. If the color is off, the result will still look respectable.
