The tried and true flowable, now with fluoride
Virtuoso Flowable is ideal for small restorations with difficult access. It is a light-cure, low viscosity, flowable composite that has the best handling characteristics for fast and easy techniques. Its precision needle tip dispensing allows it to flow quickly for precise placement.
Clinical research shows it to have a wear rate equal to amalgam and is self-smoothing for easy finishing and polishing.
Virtuoso Flowable is available in 18 Vita Shades, including B1 for your extra-light requirements, Clear for glazing, plus a Universal Opaquer.

Premolar with defective amalgam and caries.
The amalgam and caries are removed.
Contacts are formed with minimal flash.
Etch the preparation with Etch ‘N’ Seal.
After etchant is rinsed and surface is air dried, apply Tenure Quik single step bonding agent.
A 1mm base of Virtuoso Flowable is placed and cured in the base of the box and light cured. Virtuoso Flowable's low viscosity and fluoride release provide superior marginal adaptation and prevention of secondary decay in this difficult to access area of the preparation.
A second 1mm layer of Virtuoso Flowable is added to the area and light cured.
A third 1mm layer of Virtuoso Flowable is added to the box and floor of the cavity preparation.
A layer of Virtuoso Universal composite, Shade A2 is placed against the Flowable.
A layer of Virtuoso Universal composite, Shade A1 is placed.
Case prior to contact device and barrier removal.
A Completed case.
What is the purpose of the fluoride in Virtuoso Flowable?
Fluoride is known to prevent secondary decay from forming.
Why should a dentist use Virtuoso Flowable?
Studies have shown that Virtuoso Flowable has a statistically greater fracture toughness and a higher biaxial flexural strength than competitors.
What restorative should I select for incisal repair?
Virtuoso Flowable flows quickly and easily into the most difficult to reach areas. It has a wear rate equal to amalgam. It is a light cured, low viscosity resin composite with smooth, easy handling characteristics for fast and easy techniques. Virtuoso Flowable is a hybrid composite, combining barium glass and fumed silica with a submicron particle size, achieving the optimum in strength and esthetics. It also contains fluoride for added protection.
What is the difference between composites and traditional silver fillings?
Traditional silver fillings are called amalgams. A composite is a mixture of glass and resin and gives a tooth colored restoration. The size and type of the glass determines the strength of the composite and also determines the beauty or esthetics of the restoration.
What does radiopaque mean?
If a composite material is radiopaque, this indicates that the restoration will be easily identified in radiographs (x-rays). Barium glass are glass particles coated with Barium metal. This is what causes the material to be radiopaque.
