Petrolatum e.g. vaseline should be used in place of Temp-Bond modifier.
Temporary Dental Cement
TempBond™ is a temporary cement for trial cementing restorations or cementing temporary crowns and bridges. TempBond and TempBond™ NE are available in automix syringe, tube delivery and Unidose. Temp-Bond withstands mastication, seals the temporary restoration and prevents seepage, yet affords easy removal when desired. Temp-Bond NE is a non-eugenol temporary dental cement that will not inhibit the polymerization of permanent resin cements and acrylic temporaries. Resin-based Temp-Bond™ Clear with Triclosan is the most translucent provisional cement in the market, ensuring superior esthetics. Available in a convenient automix syringe, it offers a dual cure for added security and flexibility, ease of handling, excellent mechanical retention, and easy removal from preparations.
- Multiple formulations. TempBond, TempBond NE and TempBond Clear with Triclosan for all of your temporary restoration needs.
- Delivery choices. Unidose™, tubes and new automix syringe offer flexibility in delivery options.
- Flows and mixes easily. Delivers optimal consistency for solid, complete seating of temporary restorations.
- High bond strength. Heightens patient confidence. Prevents leakage and sensitivity to cold and heat.
- Easy to remove. Enhances patient comfort. Minimizes potential for damage to the prep or temporary restoration.

"Temp-Bond Clear with Triclosan's strength gives the clinician the peace of mind that the restoration will stay in place for the duration of time needed."
Dr. Stephen D. Poss
"In this age of cosmetic dentistry, Temp-Bond Clear with Triclosan is THE temporary cement for provisionally luting anterior temporary restorations to place."
Dr. Gary Radz
Solitine liquid cream solvent can be used to remove Temp-Bond and Temp-Bond NE. This product should not be used in the mouth, but can be used on temporary and permanent crowns and bridges outside of the mouth. To remove Temp-Bond from teeth in the mouth, the best procedure is to prophy the teeth with flour pumice.
If the batch number of the base and the accelerator are far apart, it is likely that the base and the accelerator are not matched. Bases and accelerators are matched to give a specific working time. Even though all bases are made the same, there are slight variations in the reactivity of the base paste. For this reason, we will match each batch of base with a suitable catalyst. For example, if the base has inherently faster working time, that base will be matched with a catalyst with a slower working time. This will give the proper handling characteristic. For this reason, it is not recommended to use a base from one kit of Temp-Bond, with an accelerator from another kit.
Eugenol containing temporary cements, like Temp-Bond, will inhibit the polymerization of resin cements, including Nexus
Temp-Bond Modifier was used to keep Temp-Bond from setting hard. A small amount is mixed in with the base and accelerator. This is often done when temporarily cementing a crown that fits the preparation very well. The dentist needs to be very careful when cementing a permanent restoration temporarily. It is not unusual that when this is done the dentist may have difficulty removing the restoration, even if Temp-Bond Modifier has been used.
The same base paste is used in Temp-Bond NE as is used in Temp-Bond. The accelerator in Temp-Bond NE is a traditional resin modified formulation, based on the use of ortho ethoxy benzoic acid as the setting reactant.
Solitine will dissolve Temp-Bond. First check that the Solitine is compatible with the fabric that the Temp-Bond is in. Test a small amount of Solitine on the fabric where it will not be noticed if it does cause damage.
Mix in some Temp-Bond Modifier or Petrolatum into the Temp-Bond base before mixing with the accelerator. This will keep the Temp-Bond from setting as hard and will consequently make the bridge easier to remove. Well fitting abutments may still pose a problem.
Temp-Bond is used for temporary cementing crowns and bridges. It is not recommended as a temporary restorative material. It does not have good wear resistance and would wear away rather quickly.
