Ultradent Products, Inc. will now offer Peak Universal Bond, the proven self-etch and total-etch adhesive, in a bottle delivery option. Ultradent will unveil the 4ml bottle dispenser at the California Dental Association trade show on April 10-13.
Peak Universal Bond is a 7.5% filled light-cured resin ideal for all bonding procedures, both direct and indirect. It provides optimal bond strengths and works with composite, metal, zirconia, porcelain repair, and post and core procedures. Peak’s unique formulation, which is compatible with self-etch and total-etch techniques, also features a 0.2% concentration of chlorhexidine, which has been proven to ensure long-term bond strengths.1,2,3,4 In fact, in both in-house studies5 and a study conducted by Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada,6 Peak consistently recorded the highest bond strengths on both dentin and enamel.
Whether the clinician chooses the original syringe delivery or Ultradent’s new bottle delivery option, Peak Universal Bond’s trusted features and benefits remain the same and consistently offer unsurpassed bond strength, regardless of material.
