Product Selection Guidelines

The selection of suitable materials or appropriate combinations of materials for a given clinical application requires in depth understanding of the features and limitations of available dental products. The following recommendations apply:

In applications where low curing shrinkage, high wear resistance, low water sorption, excellent x-ray opacity, and low coefficient of thermal expansion are of concern (such as for large posterior restorations), the use of highly-filled, preferably hybrid-type, light-cure restoratives is recommended. Sci-Pharm's CuRay-Fil® and CuRay-II® are specifically designed to meet such requirements. Alternatively, their self-cured counterpart, Sci-Pharm's Anterior/Posterior Composite Restorative, may also be used.

Where thinner consistency materials are desirable (i.e., in making shallow Class V restorations; for repairing minor structural enamel defects; masking discoloration; or bonding prefabricated veneers) lower viscosity flowable hybrid-type composites such as Sci-Pharm's CuRay-Match® would be the material of choice. To enhance bonding of resin-based restoratives and cements to enamel and dentin, or to prevent marginal leakage, the application of bonding agents (such as Sci-Pharm's Enamel Bonding Agent or Dentin/Enamel Bonding Agent) is indicated.

It should be remembered that resin-based restoratives and cements are incompatible with Eugenol-based materials. Consequently, non-Eugenol temporary restoratives and cements (e.g., Sci-Pharm's Tempo-Rex®, Until®, and Fastfil®) are the materials of choice prior to application of permanent resin-based restoratives or luting agents.
