400 million restorations later, Filtek Reigns Supreme

Celebrations and milestones

3M ESPE is celebrating ten years since the introduction of its ground-breaking Filtek Supreme XTE Universal line of dental composite.


First introduced in 2002, Filtek Supreme has come to be prized in practices the world over for its true nanotechnology, which enables dentists to use the dental composite to easily create restorations with exceptional aesthetics. After ten years, over 400 million restorations have been placed using these products.

Over the past decade, the Filtek Supreme line has been the market-leading nanocomposite in the U.S. and Australasia and dentists around the world have seen how they can help change patients' lives with this dental composite. In fact, over the past year, 3M ESPE's "Share Your Story" campaign has encouraged dentists to submit their own personal experiences and anecdotes about improving patients' smiles with this dental composite.

"We are proud to celebrate a decade of helping dentists create beautiful smiles and lasting restorations with this product," said Drew Hoopes, the US marketing manager. "It is a true testament to 3M ESPE's innovative technology that Filtek Supreme XTE remains such a popular and trusted material in so many practices."

By incorporating true nanotechnology into the composite, the Filtek Supreme line provides the polish and polish retention of a microfill, while maintaining the strength and wear properties of a modern hybrid dental composite. Since the dental composite's initial introduction, 3M ESPE has refined the Filtek formula through three generations and today's formula, 3M ESPE Filtek Supreme XTE Universal Restorative, makes it easier for dentists to produce beautiful lifelike results - with exceptional handling, lasting polish and single-shade simplicity.
