Premise™

Composites

Universal Nanofilled Composite

Premise is a universal nanofilled restorative composite that offers superior esthetics, handling, outstanding strength and low shrinkage. These benefits come from the tri-modal filler system which uses 3 distinct filler sizes to increase loading. In addition, the incorporation of PPF (pre-polymerized filler) limits shrinkage and enhances polishability and wear resistance. Premise also builds on the proven success of Point 4 by using the same 0.4 micron barium glass filler, which provides outstanding blending – making restorations hard to detect.

Testimonials

Ease of handling and trueness of color are very important to me when creating lifelike composite restorations. Premise fits the bill on both counts admirably. And my patients can see the difference.
Dr. Robert Lowe

FAQs

What is PPF filler?

Our PPF (prepolymerized filler) is a proprietary blend of low-shrinkage resin, barium glass and 0.02 micron filler. This combination results in decreased shrinkage and optimal handling for a truly unique material that stands alone as an industry leader.

What is trimodal technology?

Trimodal technology is comprised of Kerr proprietary PPF filler (see FAQ #1), Point 4 filler, and 0.02 micron filler. The combination of these three (TRImodal) fillers is unique to the industry. No other material on the market has this combination of truly unique fillers to create a superior product like Premise.

What are the benefits of trimodal technology?

The combination of these three fillers creates a platform that consists of an ultra-low shrinkage material at 1.6%. Due to the Point 4 filler, you'll experience the clinically proven polish and durability that made Point 4 famous. And with PPF, you will feel confident knowing you're using a material for posterior restorations that is highly filled at 84%.

What is the difference between Premise and Premise Packable?

Premise Packable is slightly altered to a thicker consistency, like the feel of a condensing alloy.
