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.

4. BeautiBond®

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.

5. Brush&Bond®

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.


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.

8. DiaPlus

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.


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.

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.
