Clinical Evaluations

Build-It FR earned 4.1 stars out of a possible 5.0.
Strengths:
Minimal slumping tendencies, exceeds dentin hardness on surface when light-cured, and has the most shades in this category, with A2 and A3 being good dentin matches. Available in dual-barrel syringes and cartridges. Inexpensive.

Weaknesses:
One evaluator considered it too runny. No shades quite reached dentin hardness @ 7mm, although a few came close. Exotherm relatively high. Scrape tests just mediocre for A shades and poor for the others.

Bottom line:
Inexpensive material with dispensing options and good surface hardness when light-cured.
