3M™ ESPE™ Filtek™ Supreme XTE Universal and Flowable Restoratives owe their unique properties due to the unique nanotechnology first introduced by 3M ESPE in 2002.

This technology allowed the development of a composite with the strength and wear of a hybrid plus excellent polish retention and optical properties.

The unique nanotechnology has been further improved in Filtek Supreme XTE universal and flowable restoratives. These now offer:

  • Excellent aesthetics
  • Unsurpassed polish retention*
  • Low wear

In addition the resin system of Filtek™ Supreme XTE Flowable has been improved ...

...but keeping the favourable handling the same.
