Consultant's Comments:
  • “Nice esthetics and does not slump.”
  • “Able to establish good proximal contacts.”
  • “The opaque shades are very useful for blocking out underlying dark colors.”
  • “Shades are slightly opaque for anterior restorations; posteriors look great.”
  • “The shade guide breaks too easily.”
  • “Composite is too stiff with very little flow.”
Description:
Premise is a light-cured resin composite containing three different sized filler particles (tri-modal): prepolymerized fillers, 30-50 microns; barium glass, 0.4 microns; and silica nanoparticles, 0.02 microns. The total filler load is 69% by volume (84% by weight). The different sized particles are intended to optimize handling, strength and polish and to reduce polymerization shrinkage. The composite is suitable for anterior and posterior restorations with no complicated shading system or special polishing techniques. It is available in Master or Starter Kits with either unit dose or syringe delivery. The Master Kit contains 16 shades (A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1, C2, D2, XL1, XL2, Clear, Amber, Grey, A3 Opaque, A3.5 Opaque, A3 Packable, A3.5 Packable); Optibond Solo Plus; Optiguard; etchant; polishing kit with discs, points and cups; and accessories. Twenty-two consultants evaluated Premise in 596 clinical applications. This product received a 91% clinical rating.   Product Features
