OptiBond™ Universal

Single-Component Universal Dental Adhesive

OptiBond™ Universal is a single-component light cure adhesive, providing excellent adhesion to a variety of surfaces and substrates for direct and indirect applications—even indirect metal-based restorations when used with NX3 or Maxcem Elite resin cement. OptiBond Universal simplifies the bonding procedure, making it less technique sensitive.

  • One coat application
  • Can be used with self-etch, selective etch, and total-etch techniques
  • Direct / Indirect Use – Excellent dental adhesive for enamel, dentin, porcelain and ceramics
  • Low film thickness creates a better fit of final restorations (~5 microns)

Direct Applications

  • Light-cure composite and compomer restorations
  • Composite/ceramic/metal repairs
  • Cavity sealing for amalgam restorations
  • Light-cure or dual-cure core buildups (always light cure the core material)

Indirect Applications**

  • Veneers
  • Porcelain, composite and metal-based inlays, onlays, crowns and bridges
  • Endodontic posts
  • Cavity sealing as a pretreatment for indirect restorations

**For indirect applications, use NX3 dual-cure whenever there is little or no access to light.
