Accolade SRO (super radiopaque) flowable composite has a radiopacity of 320% of aluminum, (similar to titanium). Radiographs were never easier to read. SRO is an ideal material for a base with its high compressive strength. The Accolade family of flowables is a more thixotropic formulation of Starflow. Confirmed in a recent review by a leading clinical reviewer, Accolade SRO is the most radiopaque flowable on the market, yet it is value priced. It also offers the exceptional strength, aesthetics, and polishability of Starflow and other composites in the Accolade family. It is available in A-5, A-2, and extralight.

Snap-On Smile is a practical and effective solution that serves as a noninvasive cosmetic enhancement option as well as a diagnostic appliance. It requires no prepping, injections, or adhesives. Its design is flexible, incredibly strong, and snaps right over patients’ natural teeth. Retention is completely tooth-borne, so the appliance does not impinge on the gum tissue or cover the palate, making it look and feel very natural. Patients love Snap-On Smile because they look great, and it allows them to eat and drink normally. It can be used as an implant provisional and as a replacement for partial dentures. It is also a terrific incentive for patients who are in need of—but are hesitant to commit to—more involved restorative treatments.
