I was wondering if there is anything special about the surpass brushes. I am so used to the red white and blue simplicity applicator-- I was hoping that I could use the microbrush for surp 1 and then follow up with the blue brush for surp 2 and a new brush for surp 3.

Please advise.

Thanks.

don't use the term surp. Someone dear to our hearts may have an aneurysm!

I have been trying to figure out where to put this request, and haven't been able to find it on the board so far.

JK,

You showed a video of (now I can't remember if it was simplicity or Surpass) dabbing technique and how the material literally flowed out over the previous layer of applied material. I found that to be one of the most intriguing visual images I've ever seen in regard to proper technique.

Is that video available here on the Apex forum? Or private property?

Thanks Smile

It's in the lecture. It's one of those special things that I like to keep for that purpose.

And yes, it is pretty neat.

I know it's in the lecture Wink , that's where I saw it!! I've been very observant of applying Sur 2 over Sur 1 the past 2 weeks...quite a show I didn't know was happening previously!

O.K. people. I've been using Simplicity without trouble for some years. I've got Surpass and like the idea of "mega bond strength." I find myself using it in spots where I think I need a little more "oomph." I hear a little Nigel Tufnel voice in my head saying, "but this one goes to 11!" So why not use it ALL situations! Sure, it's more expensive, but hell, I'm made of money!

My biggest hangup with Surpass is that 3 needs to be dispensed and used in 10 seconds or so or my brush gets stuck together and the stuff starts curing. I use a Sheervision Firefly Infinity light so I admit it's like looking directly at the sun. I don't have the filter yet.

What say you all? Am I alone with this problem? Who's still using Simplicity for most of their bonding? Who's made a complete switch?

All I really want to do is hang out with the cool kids. So who are the cool kids?

With great respect and undying gratitude,

Alan

Very Happy

Alan,

I have switched totally to Surpass. Before I start bonding, I turn my FireFly almost off. That helps with not setting up the material. I don't have the filter yet either. Cool

BTW, a lawn service cuts my grass!!!!!!! Wink Laughing

Dude...I'm only a dentist 3.5 days/week. How do YOU know what I do with my spare time?

Shocked

I'm still using both. Maybe it's because I like variety, but it worries me if it's not cool to use both.
For just common or garden stuff, Simplicity is my old standby with no problems. For these Cl V's and Cl III's where I feel retention is a problem, then bring out the big guns and use the Surpass, and make sure and dispense the Sur 3 at the last minute.
Works for me!

Scottie and Flem- The latest from Sheervision is that they had to retool the filter and it should be out real soon...

I see the comment above, but am adding this (also put it on DT)


Calling all Sheervision users...and other headlamps, too.

Things are going just swell!! Except, that even with the filter flipped over the light, my Surpass and other restorative materials are starting to set before we're ready. So, if working on anteriors, I'm now totally turning the light off....it doesn't seem to affect the posterior restorations anywhere as much.

And, if you're thinking distance is a factor, I'm still at working distance in either case.

Help me??
