    First radiopaque universal adhesive

    Radiolucency under an existing restoration can lead to misdiagnosis — and potentially invasive overtreatment. Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive is the first universal adhesive with dentin-like radiopacity, helping to overcome this issue.

    Bonds and seals caries-affected dentin

    Offering the same high bond strength to caries-affected dentin as it does to sound dentin, Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive gives you confidence when performing minimally invasive preparations. In addition to creating excellent quality restoration margins, it seals caries-affected dentin by forming a well-defined, void-free hybrid layer.
