How often do you try to place anatomy into your composites, only to see all that anatomy distorted as soon as you pull your instrument away? Do you ever feel like your composite dries out during placement, and then it’s hard to sculpt?
We’ve all faced these issues, and many times we wet our instruments with a bonding agent to overcome these challenges. Unfortunately, this is probably one of the worst things we can do. This is especially true if you are using a single-bottle bonding system, as the solvents can impact the integrity of your composite restorations. Solvents should be evaporated, and when they are not, they can impact polymerization and create weak spots in your restorations.
If you are using a bonding agent with HEMA, you may actually see your restorations yellow. Thankfully, combating this issue is very simple with Ultradent’s composite wetting resin. It is 45 percent filled, so it does not weaken your restorations. It also contains no HEMA, so your properly picked composite color is not impacted.
The chemistry of the wetting resin also allows proper polymerization to occur. Furthermore, one or two drops can allow you to properly place composite for an entire quadrant, as a little bit goes a long way toward decreasing stress and increasing predictability.
