Beautifil II is a fluoride-releasing, light-cured, nano-hybrid composite
indicated for Class I-V restorations, wedge-shaped defects and root
caries, direct laminate veneer, core build-up, and repair of restorations.
The manufacturer classifies it as a GIOMER, an esthetic restorative
material that combines the characteristics of both composite and glass
ionomer. Beautifil II is resin-based, containing filler particles that are
derived from S-PRG (Surface Pre-reacted Glass Ionomer) technology.
The average filler particle size is 0.8 μm with a range of particle sizes
from 0.01 to 4.0 μm. The filler content is 83% by weight and 69% by
volume. Incremental layering and light curing are advised for placement
of Beautifil II in a manner typical of traditional composites. A fluoridereleasing
bonding agent like FL-BOND II is highly recommended.
Beautifil II is available 12 shades: A1, A2, A3, A3.5, A4, B1, B2, C2,
Incisal, BW, A20, and A30. Itis packaged in kits containing six-color,
