CR Clinical Observations: Composite restorations have now been used in dentistry since the early 1960s. They have evolved through several major changes, but they remain as refined versions of their previous generations. To our knowledge, major changes in composite products are not coming soon.

Current products are generally very good and are more similar than different from one another. However, they do vary in aspects such as: working characteristics, ease of use, radiopacity, color-matching properties, depth of cure and cost.

CR scientists and clinicians have compared multiple current brands indicated for Class II restorations to provide for you an observation of some important characteristics to guide your use.

  • Many clinicians are frustrated with Class II resin-based composite restorations because they require significant time and provide low revenue. There are third-party payment issues, and these restorations require significant expertise to place adequately.
  • Three-year data on current nanofill brands of resin-based composites show promise.
  • Clinicians today are still using amalgam for multiple reasons, including ease of placement, caries prevention, and durability, despite health concerns or other reservations.
  • Because of esthetic characteristics of resin-based composites, most patients currently choose this material over amalgam.

This report outlines the current state of Class II resin-based composites by: CR survey data, a comparison of characteristics among brands, clinical tips and CR conclusions.
