How does it work?

Reliable formula



Modifies and penetrates the smear layer to plug dentine tubules and avoid post operative sensitivity


Patented formula with GPDM monomer, for proven long lasting bond strength


HEMA components' hydrophilic and hydrophobic action actively reacts both on dentine and bonding agent


Low film thickness formula, for amazing aesthetic results, everywhere



No auxiliary products needed

  • Easy application with strong bonding results
  • No need to selective-etch for an effective enamel preparation
  • No need for dual cure activator for compatibility with any cement
  • Effective Silane replacement







Effective on all dental surfaces and areas

True universal formula effective for:

  • Direct and indirect restorations
  • Both dentine and enamel
  • Most critical dental areas (i.e V class)
  • Great aesthetic results
  • Compatible with any resin cement





Why is it ideal for aesthetic restorations?

Low film thickness and a neutral colour make OptiBond XTR optimal for aesthetic direct and indirect restorations.

OptiBond XTR: lower film thickness

This, however, doesn’t compromise its bond strength, given the primer’s ability to create deep microspaces, and the special acid formulation that effectively reacts to both dentine and enamel surfaces, allowing OptiBond XTR to deeply penetrate the tubules.

OptiBond XTR: Deep Resin penetration

How does it do this?

The unique formula has a very low filler load (only 15%).

This ensures OptiBond XTR produces a film so thin it is not visible at the naked eye, and a highly aesthetic result.

OptiBond XTR: Unique Formula

The perfect bond

When used together, OptiBond™ XTR and NX3 combine the clarity of one, standardised process for all your indirect procedures, with outstanding aesthetic results even in total dark cure.

OptiBond XTR has changed the way I look at self etching adhesives. Finally, we have a self etching adhesive that we can use with confidence in all applications.
Scott Parker, DDS
OptiBond XTR has simplified my CEREC cementation protocol in many ways. No Etch, no sensitivity, and very easy to use.
Ernest Johnson, DDS Cerec Mentor
OptiBond XTR allows me to consolidate all of my adhesive needs into one system with increased bond strength and no sensitivity, which also saves me time.
Steve Poss, DDS
As I've progressively moved closer to using exclusively self-etch products, I've wanted one that has universal applications to simplify our bonding protocols, and OptiBond XTR fills that void. I get the low post-op sensitivity of a self-etch system combined with the bond strengths of a 2-bottle system. Throw in the fact that it bonds to full contour zirconia restorations and I'm in!
Dr. DiTolla, DDS
