A Precise Balance of Handling, Esthetics, and Performance

With Ultradent’s innovative formula, Mosaic universal composite delivers lasting, lifelike restorations. Use this product for all restorative purposes, no matter the complexity.

The key to producing a superior composite is not to place emphasis on a single unique feature or raw material, but to achieve a precise balance between a multitude of components. Flexibility, longevity, and natural results highlight the benefits of Mosaic universal composite.

What the clinician considers to be a minor restoration can make a strong impact on the patient’s satisfaction with their smile.

Highly Sculptable Handling Provides Total Control

Fantastic control and sculptability is provided by the creamy consistency of Mosaic composite. This facilitates natural anatomy to be sculpted without fear of fine details slumping or fading as you manipulate other areas of the restoration. Mosaic composite is able to “feather” out to a thin, clean edge without crumbling or tearing. When you need to adapt the composite to the margins of the restoration, this product will deliver quality results.

Balanced Performance Ensures Functional Durability and Esthetic Longevity

Mosaic composite is a symphony of form and function. This balance has been struck without compromising the integrity of other critical material properties such as wear, flexural strength, compressive strength, and gloss retention.

Mosaic composite’s twenty intuitive shade options provide predictable, natural results. In the anterior region where a natural result is critical, shade matching with a composite resin is only part of the equation. The opacity and translucency of a restorative material should be considered with equal importance, as the interplay with light affects the final result. Mosaic composite was created to match the most common shades and translucency of natural teeth, bringing more natural smiles to light. Use the shade chart below to view your options.

Technical Details

Handling

​Mosaic universal composite’s consistency is ideally suited for efficiently adapting both anterior and posterior restorations. Once the anatomy of the tooth is formed, the material retains its shape and does not slump.

Working Time

The working time for Mosaic composite is between 3:30 and 7:30 depending on the power of the light.

Shade System

Mosaic composite offers 20 shade options to produce predictable, natural results. The slightly translucent dentin shades provide a chameleon effect which enables only a single shade to be used in smaller restorations. The enamel shades give variable opacity to allow the use of a single enamel shade to be used on smaller chips or defects of anterior teeth.



Wear Resistance

​​​​Mosaic composite provides wear resistance on par with the natural wear of enamel to create a resistant restoration while not being overly abrasive to opposing dentition.


Gloss Retention

​The proprietary dispersion of the nanofillers in Mosaic composite allows for a high polish and long-term gloss retention without sacrificing mechanical properties suited for high stress-bearing restorations. This allows the worn surfaces to produce smaller defects and provide better gloss retention after being subject to abrasion.

Radiopacity

The radiopacity of Mosaic composite is the equivalent of or greater than 2 mm of aluminum in both dentin and enamel shades and can be easily detected on a radiograph.


Delivery

Mosaic universal composite has two dispensing options: a 4 g syringe or a .2 g unit dose capsule. A unique and novel KleenSleeve™ protects composite from picking up contamination from the black outer syringe barrel.

The syringe features a unique, innovative design with a smooth contoured handle and barrel to allow for easy cleaning while still being easy to grip and identify.

Procedures

Mosaic Universal Composite Step by Step

See Instructions for Use for complete instructions, warnings, and precautions.

Step 1

​For Class IV restorations, veneers, or diastema closures, we recommend a silicon putty matrix fabricated from diagnostic wax-up.

Step 2

​Use the matrix as a guide for the basic shape of the restoration and to support the initial lingual placement of material.

Step 3

​Inner dentin body layer includes the basic hue of the exposed dentin. Apply basic hue (A3 shown) and create mamelons using a carver.

Step 4

​Cover body and extend enamel edge with appropriate enamel shade (Enamel Neutral shown).

Step 5

Make final adjustments with multifluted finishing burs. Use Jiffy composite adjusting and polishing cups, points, and disks for smoothing.

Testimonials

​Very nice opaque dentins, beautiful enamel shades, and a great handling. This is what I like in Mosaic!

Dr. Gaetano Paolone

Love the way the material handles and I love the realistic and beautiful look…Mosaic composite is a WINNER! Can’t wait to do more cases!

Dr. Hal Stewart

​"I was very impressed with how Mosaic handled. I love the consistency. It was also very easy to place, sculpt, and condense."

Dr. John Flucke

​It holds it shape, it holds its shade value, and the integrity of the material is great.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the filler composition for Mosaic composite?

    ​The details related to filler composition are proprietary; Mosaic composite contains zirconia-silica glass ceramic and 20 nanometer silica. MISSING VARIANT (CLM-00305.1){CITATION_NUMBER}

  • What kind of resin is used in Mosaic composite?

    ​Mosaic composite is a Bis-GMA-based composite.

  • Is Mosaic compatible with other bonding systems?

    Yes, Mosaic composite is methacrylate-based and compatible with other resin bonding systems. For optimal results, we recommend bonding with the Peak Adhesive System.

  • Is it possible to layer Mosaic composite in greater than 2 mm increments?

    For adequate polymerization, it is important that Mosaic composite is layered in increments of 2 mm or less.

  • What are the recommended polishing steps?

    We recommend the Jiffy composite finishing line for shaping and polishing. Use the green (coarse), yellow (medium), and then white (fine) Jiffy adjusting and polishing system for quick shaping. The blue (ultrafine) Jiffy HiShine is an optional polishing step to provide an extra smooth and a highly polished finish. If extra shine is desired, we recommend using the Jiffy Goat Hair Brush with Ultradent Diamond Polish Mint.

  • Do the Mosaic Singles require a special dispensing gun?

    Mosaic Singles can be dispensed using the Ultradent Composite Gun or any standard composite dispensing gun.
