Class V cavities – University of Brescia, Italy
4 year clinical evaluation with two different flowable composites.
Objective
The aim of this clinical trial was to assess the clinical and aesthetic performance of Venus Diamond Flow and iBOND Total Etch in
class V restorations in a controlled randomised split-mouth study design.
Materials and Methods
60 class V restorations were placed by an experienced clinical operator. All restorations were installed with modified micro-layering
technique (flow application). The used composite and adhesive materials were: Venus Diamond Flow & iBOND Total Etch (Heraeus
Kulzer) respectively Tetric EvoFlow & ExciTE (Ivoclar Vivadent) as control group. Restorations were polished with the 2-step polishing
system Venus Supra (Heraeus Kulzer). Restorations were assessed by two independent clinicians at baseline, 6bmonths, 1byear, 2byears,
3byears and 4 years using the following USPHS evaluation criteria: marginal adaptation, marginal discolouration, anatomical form,
secondary caries, colour matching ability, surface texture, fracture of restoration, retention, tooth vitality, pulpitis, post-operative sensitivity to temperature and occlusion and the patient satisfaction.
Results
Venus Diamond Flow exhibits an excellent clinical behaviour after 4 years

satisfaction
Recall rate after four years was 70 %. Every restoration kept its anatomic form. Three restorations were lost in control with Venus
Diamond Flow compared to six lost restorations in the control group. All study teeth remained caries-free and all fillings were intact.
All study teeth were vital and sound. No tooth exhibited post-operative discomfort. The patient satisfaction was in each group 100 %.
Conclusion
Venus Diamond Flow in combination with iBOND Total Etch demonstrated a good clinical performance in class V restorations
after 4byears.
