Comprising one of the most sophisticated technologies available in 3M, our dental adhesives are designed to address the unique needs of the dental industry. Over 25 years of dental science have led to the development of Single Bond Universal Adhesive, which incorporates core adhesive, filler and silane technology together with Vitrebond™ copolymer technology to produce a reliable, simple adhesive that has virtually no post-op sensitivity1. Single Bond Universal Adhesive has over 300 peer-reviewed studies and pieces of evidence2 to date, making it the most scientifically backed universal adhesive available.

Five-year trial: Evidence that 3M™ Single Bond Universal is a versatile adhesive you can trust.
This 5-year clinical study documents the performance of Single Bond Universal: 96% retention rate with the total-etch technique, and an 87% retention rate with self-etching. Simply put - you can use Single Bond Universal adhesive for both direct and indirect applications - without the need for a separate etch or primer.
That means you can reduce your adhesive inventory and simplify your process without compromising the quality of the bond.

Controlling the moisture level on dentin can be challenging when applying the total-etch technique. To reduce post-operative sensitivity, use 3M dental adhesives that hydrate the collagen network and seal dentin tubules.
Enamel surfaces not trimmed with a dental drill may affect the formation of a hybrid layer. To bond strongly to dental fillings, use an adhesive with a proven retention rate in the long haul.
