My bonding agent? It’s complicated

Most bonding agents require different protocols with extra steps depending on the type of restoration. Some require additional primers and activators depending on the material, some call for mandatory etching, and most of them need light-curing. Dealing with different protocols and technique sensitive materials leaves a margin for error, which can result in failing restorations, and even in a “break-up” with your patient.  

However, bonding does not have to be complicated.

It takes about 25 seconds to apply, and doctors can immediately proceed to place the restorative.

Not only designed to deliver fast and simple application, but also superior bond strength, Tokuyama Universal Bond demonstrates higher bond strength to dentin, enamel, and the most common restorative materials when compared to leading competitors.
