You know that the success of direct and indirect restorations depends largely on eliminating sensitivity and ensuring longevity. Choosing the right bonding agent and technique will help you achieve consistent results.

You may prefer to use the total-etch or the self-etch technique exclusively, or alternate depending on what a particular case requires. Some clinicians prefer never to self-etch, while others would rather work with a one-bottle system. Whichever way you roll, simplifying the bonding process-so you don’t have to constantly stop and think through which technique goes with which product for what type of case-goes a long way toward achieving the best clinical outcomes.

There is simplicity in limiting the number of products to a line that’s easy to use with a variety of techniques in numerous clinical situations. It allows you to stay focused on the procedure.

At the end of the day, there is nothing more satisfying than predictable outcomes and reducing the margin of clinical error. In the process, seeing savings in time, money, and inventory-without sacrificing quality-improves the success of your practice.
