I would like to use just one bonding system for all my bonding needs. My assistants have great difficulty in learning the steps of different bonding systems and I want to make it easier for them. I also only want to have to keep inventory for one system and not have to worry about multiple bonding systems. I have been seeing advertisements for iBond [Heraeus] and I think this may be the answer. It is a one-bottle system. With one application iBond Self Etch, you get etching, priming, wetting and bonding. Sounds really good. What is your experience with this product? Does it have good bond strength?
According to Heraeus:
“iBOND Self Etch, is the 7th generation all-in-one bonding agent that etches, primes, bonds, and desensitizes in one single step. With numerous scientific studies and based on Heraeus Kulzer’s long term bonding expertise, iBOND Self Etch combines high bond strength, improved marginal sealing, and virtually no post-operative sensitivity with an easy, fast and more convenient application.
iBOND Self Etch is indicated for:
* Bonding of direct composite restorations.
* Bonding of indirect restorations in combination with light-curing luting cements.
* Sealing of hypersensitive areas of teeth.”
