The shape and distribution of SpheriChrome’s filler particles allows white light to pass through the composite and combine with the colors of the patient’s surrounding dentin/enamel to reflect a patient specific shade. In cases with severe tooth discoloration or for extended Class III and IV cavities, SpheriBlock if available for masking and blocking.
Tooth shade isn’t the only important factor to consider; strength, surface finish, and shrinkage impacts the overall life and performance of the restoration.
- Smoother Surface Roughness = better aesthetics and wear; high gloss = less discoloration.
- Higher Strength = higher wear resistance to withstand chewing forces.
- Lower Shrinkage = better marginal quality and reduced chance for micro leakage.
