Mosaic universal composite
PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT BY
Stacey Simmons, DDS
Interview with ShaLyse Walker, public relations manager,
Ultradent always has some new products out on
the market. What is the latest?
At this year’s Greater New York Meeting, we’ll be featuring
our Mosaic universal composite. It’s been on the market
for about six months.
There are a lot of resins to choose from. What
makes Mosaic stand out among other leading
The unique thing about Mosaic universal composite is that
our R & D department was able to achieve the balance
required for a composite material to address all the needs
of the clinician, from handling, to esthetics, to overall
performance. Mosaic universal composite performs well
in all these areas—not just one or two! Plus, it performs at
the highest levels possible, giving the clinician and patient
fabulous results, both visually and functionally.
What are some clinical benefits of Mosaic, from
the provider standpoint as well as the patient
Mosaic universal composite’s smooth, pliable consistency
allows for total control during manipulation. Once the
material is shaped, it won’t flow or slump out of place.
Available in 20 intuitive dental and enamel shades, it provides predictable shade matching using single-, double-,
or multiple-layer techniques, as it was designed to emulate the same levels of translucency and opacity seen in
Dentin and enamel shades also mimic the same fluorescence that occurs in natural dentin and enamel. The
proprietary dispersion of nanofillers in Mosaic composite
allows for a high polish and long-term gloss retention, so
the restorations maintain a long-term luster. Low-volume
shrinkage and low shrinkage stress reduce the potential
for strain on the restoration during polymerization, while
high compressive and flexural strength ensure that the
restoration can withstand repetitive chewing and biting
Patients have really enjoyed the esthetic component of
Mosaic in the smile zone.
Sometimes the deal breaker for clinicians when
choosing a product is cost. How does Mosaic
composite compare in this regard?
Mosaic universal composite is priced very competitively
for the extremely high-quality results it provides both the
clinician and the patient, functionally and esthetically.
What is the feedback you’ve been getting from
dentists who have used Mosaic?
Very positive! Since the product has come on the market,
we’ve had great feedback about its consistency, ease of
placement, polishability, and more.
