From reliable, tried-and-true dental materials that have been used for years to brand new materials just hitting the market, it is important for clinicians to continue to stay aware of the options available for restoration. In this product showcase, we've highlighted the top adhesives.
1. 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Plus Adhesive
3M Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive is the first radiopaque, all-in-one universal adhesive for all direct and indirect bonding indications. It is a fully aligned system with the adhesive cured by the cement, so no light curing is needed.
2. Adhese® Universal
Adhese Universal is a single component, light-cure adhesive for direct and indirect bonding procedures that is compatible with all etching techniques: self-etch, selective-enamel-etch, and total-etch.
3. All-Bond Universal®
All-Bond Universal can be used for direct and indirect restorations and is formulated to be compatible with light-, dual- and self-cure materials. All-Bond Universal facilitates standardized clinical protocols for the effective delivery of adhesion with a single bottle.
With this unique “dual adhesive” formula, clinicians are guaranteed high bond strength regardless of the procedure. BeautiBond is proven to be sensitivity-free, and its 5 µm film thickness eliminates visible marginal stain lines.
Brush&Bond is an easy-to-use, high strength, self-etch bonding system that protects and desensitizes. It works with all light-, self-, and dual-cure resins to bond direct and indirect restorations, seal crown preparations, and assist with core buildups.
6. CLEARFIL™ Universal Bond Quick
CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick, is a fluoride-releasing, single-bottle, universal adhesive that combines the original MDP monomer with a new Amide monomer to achieve RAPID BOND TECHNOLOGY. These two monomers join forces to provide excellent curing properties, which result in higher bonding strengths, less fluid absorption, and no wait time.
7. DenTASTIC® UNO-DUO™
DenTASTIC UNO is a single component, fifth generation, total-etch adhesive for use with all direct restorations and light-cure applications. When mixed with DenTASTIC DUO, it becomes a simplified dual-cure adhesive for indirect restorations and bonding to composite core materials.
DiaPlus is a 5th generation single component bonding agent designed to bond all classes of direct composite restorations. It is an ethanol-based bonding agent that provides exceptional bond strength.
9. Futurabond U
Futurabond U is the first truly universal dual-cure adhesive available in a single dose delivery system. It can be used in self-, selective-, or total-etch techniques and works with all light-, self-, or dual-cure composite materials without the need for an additional dual-cure activator.
10. G2-BOND Universal
G2-BOND Universal is an all-around universal two-bottle adhesive system that offers the features and benefits that clinicians expect from both self-etch and etch-and-rinse “gold standard” adhesives and more.
11. MPa™ Max Maximum Performance Adhesive
Achieving consistent results and long-term retention, MPa Max Maximum Performance Adhesive eliminates postoperative sensitivity while providing an unrivalled bond strength to dentin, enamel, zirconia, and lithium disilicate.
12. ONE COAT 7 UNIVERSAL
ONE COAT 7 UNIVERSAL is a single component, light-cure, universal adhesive that provides exceptional bonding values to enamel and dentin. It can be used for all application techniques, including self-etch, selective-etch, and total-etch.
13. OptiBond™ Universal Single-Component Universal Adhesive
OptiBond Universal is a single-component, light-cure adhesive that provides excellent adhesion to a variety of surfaces and substrates for direct and indirect applications. OptiBond Universal simplifies the bonding procedure, making it less technique sensitive.
14. Peak™ Universal Bond
Peak Universal Bond light-cure resin adhesive is ideal for indirect and direct bonding, including post and core procedures. With 7.5% filler, its viscosity is optimized for minimal film thickness and superior strength.
15.Tokuyama Universal Bond
Tokuyama Universal Bond is designed to place direct and indirect restorations without the need for extra primers, activators, agitation, or light-curing—no matter what restorative material is being used. tokuyamauniversalbond.com
16. Velvet Etch™
Velvet Etch is a 40% phosphoric acid etchant with an optimized viscosity to facilitate precision control and accurate placement. When applied to vertical tooth surfaces, it remains in place. Velvet Etch is the new benchmark for phosphoric acid etchants.
