Solve 6 of your Biggest Challenges

With rising patient expectations, dentists must create esthetic restorations without losing efficiency. By using Filtek Universal Restorative to overcome these 6 common challenges, you can more simply create beautiful, lasting results.

1. Match VITA and blend to natural dentition

Filtek Universal Restorative, which is a true nano-composite, helps you create natural-looking restorations with efficiency and simplicity, using 8 specially designed shades, plus an XW, that blend to natural dentition.

Match VITA and blend

All 8 Filtek Universal designer shades plus an Extra White (XW) cover 100% of the 19 VITA classical and bleach shades.1

2. Match the white shade of bleached teeth

With a whiter, extra white (XW), Filtek Universal Restorative eliminates the need for another specialty shade, simplifying the matching process and giving your patients an extra white smile.
