Question Asked on 8/11/2015

Is it possible to reduce the number of steps while maintaining the same high bond strength?

Answer Response by Dr. Suh on 8/11/2015

Some new universal adhesives are single-step systems, but still have bond strengths as high as multiple-step adhesive systems for dentin bonding. However, for enamel bonding, a separate phosphoric acid etching step is recommended to optimize bond strength.
