I strongly recommend using the WO Titan as the initial layer when placing a core build-up if you're not using the WO Anchor. It makes visualization of the composite margin far easier than it would be for a tooth color material.

And...

put down a THIN layer first and light-activate it together with Surpass. At last 20 seconds because the WO is well, white opaque and it blocks light effectively.

If you place the WO layer of Titan, make the next layers A4.

This will make the WO layer stand out like a beacon when you're prepping the tooth and it will help with depth perception.

What else can you tell me about WO Titan (uses).
It covers meatal of a porc repair?
Just a radiopaque as my other Titan?
If estetics is a non-issue (1st layer of a deep posterior tooth), then WO is preferred insofar as it will make it easier to see/remove if a remake is needed (like a purple flowable would be)?
Anything else?

Thanks

i use it for sealants... sure maybe not as esthetic as a2... but it's so easy to see.. you can control excess material so much better!

A4 and WO are probably my 2 most used Titans.

That's a good point. Be sure to light-activate it for at least 20 seconds with a good light. Together with Surpass is OK.

it might be my imagination.. but could it be the WO is more sensitive to my overhead light than the other colours? (more photoinitiators?)

Not to my knowledge, but Scott can verify.

And am I correct that except for an esthetic issue, I can use it just like my current Titan shade?

Thanks

Everything is definitely sensitive to my headlamp. But I digress....


When I was using WO, it seemed to have a tendency to separate into clear and whiter areas. For this reason I stopped, and primarily use a very thin layer of A2 universally. I then either use Anchor, or my Vit-l-essence dentin shades to opaque things out.

Is the WO more homogeneous these days?

thats exactly what i meant.. i thought it was activating faster. tho after i cure it with the light, it looks homogenous.
