Fillers found in dental restorative composites and dental coatings include derivatives of minerals such as barium aluminum silicate, barium aluminum borosilicate, strontium borosilicate glassware, and other glassware oxides (Includes x-rays) that make the restorative part appear darker when taken by the dentist. These fillers are melted to glass using a certain amount of metal oxides or carbonates, which are crushed and powdered and then melted in suitable platinum or ceramic crucible at temperatures above 1400 ° C and then cooled to the glass. It is powdered in a special machine to reach the desired mesh size. Acid wash is performed to absorb soluble alkali ions followed by smoothing and drying and to correct in dental materials by appropriate keying agent (trimethoxy propyl methacrylate silane) to be appropriately modified and then dry and sized. They are packaged and applied to the restorative composites or other dental materials appropriately according to the type of filler.

In COMPOWHITE, using raw materials prepared separately by their manufacturing methods, including diacrylate monomers and filler phase fillers, dental restorative composites of similar quality to foreign commercial specimens (Alfadent and…) were built and their quality has been approved by the Ministry of Health and Dental Equipment (ISO), based on ISO analysis. They have been manufactured and therefore the production of restorative composites in this way has no dependence abroad. The monomers prepared were used in the formulation of one-paste (optical baking) and two-paste (chemical baking) dental composites. The quality of the monomers prepared is following the applicable ISO 4049 standard for basic dental materials.
