The easy to use self-etching bonding agent
Tenure Uni-Bond self-etching bonding system simplifies all direct bonding applications with anterior and posterior composites. It is ideal when cementing crowns and bridges with self and dual-cure resin cements. Tenure Uni-Bond is compatible with self-cure, dual-cure and light-cure composite materials.
Gloss-N-Seal is a light-cure, low viscosity, surface penetrating sealant with exceptional abrasion resistance; easily applied to seal the microcracks within the resin and enamel surface on restorations.
Bonds all routine and indirect resin composites
Bonds porcelain, ceramic veneers, amalgams and precious and semi-precious prepared metals
Bonds indirect gold, porcelain, and ceramic inlays and onlays
No separate etching required
Bonds to all intraoral surfaces - self-cure, dual-cure, and all composites - even amalgam, precious and semi-precious metals, and porcelain
Gloss-N-Seal seals and glosses your final masterpiece
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 Rule of 55?
The Rule of 55 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?
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.
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.
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.
