Perfect long lasting, sensitive-free restorations

For over 20 years, the Tenure Multi-Purpose Bonding System has demonstrated a proven clinical record of successful restorations with high bond strengths and excellent retention, combined with significant reduction of microleakage and post-operative sensitivity. Tenure is the first bonding agent accepted by the American Dental Association and a 4th generation multi-purpose, chemical curing, adhesive system for bonding any resin restorative to all intraoral surfaces.

Tenure A and B multi-purpose, self-cure adhesive bonds to the five intraoral surfaces - enamel, dentin, porcelain, composite and metal.

Tenure S is a single component, light cured, hydrophilic bonding agent that further enhances bonding. When used in combination with Tenure A and B, Tenure S offers even greater bond strengths to intraoral surfaces.


  • Bonds all routine direct and indirect resin composites
  • Bonds porcelain, ceramic veneers, amalgams, precious and semi-precious metals
  • Bonds indirect gold, porcelain, and ceramic inlays and onlays
  • Crown prep desensitization prior to impression/temp


  • Complete self-cure
  • Versatility
  • Low film thickness
  • Easy flow


Apply Etch ‘N’ Seal to enamel and dentin for 10-15 seconds. Rinse for 10 seconds and gently blot or air-dry.

Add two drops each of Tenure A&B into dappen dish, immediately mix and apply 3-5 coats. After last coat, allow to sit for 10-15 seconds and then gently air dry.

(OPTIONAL) Apply one thin coat of Tenure S to the surface.


What is a bonding agent?

Bonding agents prevent micro-leakage under restorations. They act as an adhesive between the tooth structure and the restorative material for bonding long-lasting restorations.

Why are bond strength and physical properties important?

A bonding agent creates the bond, and the composite material maintains it. The long-term success of the restoration is dependent upon the physical properties of the composite material.

What is the All Surface Bonding Chart?

The All Surface Bonding Chart states that all five surfaces (enamel, dentin, porcelain, metal, and composite) can be bonded in five steps (prep surface, apply bonding agent, select restorative, place restorative, contour/finish/polish).

What are the different types of Tenure and when do I use each?

  1. Tenure MPB is a 2 bottle system that requires a separate acid etch. It is recommended as the bonding agent of choice when bonding to enamel, especially during LUMINEERS porcelain veneers placement.

  2. Tenure Uni-Bond is also a 2-bottle system. It is an etch-free system (unless bonding to uncut enamel) and is recommended when bonding to dentin. Eliminating the separate acid etch step will decrease chances of sensitivity.

  3. Tenure Quik is a one-bottle system containing fluoride. It is recommended to dentists who prefer a one-step, light-cure bonding agent.

What is BondLink used for?

Many competitors’ bonding agents do not bond well to self-cured and dual-cured composite materials. BondLink is a coupling agent specifically designed for bonding single bottle bonding agents to self-cured composites.


Tenure Multi-Purpose

  • “After years of frustration with cement washout and recurrent decay, we now use Tenure A & B and Infinity Cement exclusively. Just microetch, bond and place the restoration - no time wasted. Geristore and Core Paste have become a critical addition to my restorative armamentarium, especially when other products just don't cut it. The dual cure property of the Den-Mat products has made clean-up incredibly easy and increased my confidence in the longevity of my restorations. I love the stuff! Thanks, Den-Mat.”
