OptiBond™ Universal

Bonding Agents

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) 
  • Delivery options include Bottle Kit, Refill (Bottle), or Unidose®
