Bisco, Inc. introduces MICRONEWTM, the first product in a new category of dental composites and reinforced microfills. Like conventional microfilled composites, MICRONEWTM contains predominately sub-micron filler particles and an average particle size of 50 nm to give it superior polishability. However, polishability does not come at the expense of strength. MICRONEWTM also contains a small percentage of larger particles to give it strength and durability not previously seen in a microfill composite.MICRONEW'sTM strength and polishability make it an excellent choice when used by itself or as a top layer with Bisco's hybrid composite RENEW®. MICRONEWTM is available in incisal, body translucent, and body opaque shades that correspond with the VITA® shade guide.
