Shofu Dental recently introduced Beautifil II LS (Low Shrink), a hybrid composite formulated to minimize polymerization shrinkage and shrinkage stress in all cavity classes. It is said to offer clinicians predictable and functional esthetics with greater strength, higher wear resistance and virtually instant polishability.
The hybrid composite features the company’s proprietary bioactive Giomer technology, which was clinically vetted in 8- and 13-year studies, according to a press release.
It demonstrates volumetric shrinkage of 0.85% and polymerization shrinkage stress of 2.72 MPa.
Proprietary monomer and high-density pre-polymerized fillers also exhibit tooth-like optical properties and natural esthetics. The material is available in 4.5-gram syringes, 20 x 0.25-gram tips, and a value intro kit. It comes in 14 dentin and enamel shades.
