BeautiBond® from Shofu is a 7th generation all-in-one adhesive that enables etching, priming, and bonding in one single application. Unique dual adhesive monomers work independently, achieving equal bond strength to dentin and enamel, comparable to 6th generation adhesives. Featuring a stable unit-dose delivery, BeautiBond is fast and easy to use and requires only 30 seconds and 5 easy steps for durable, predictable bond.

High-bond strength is achieved due to BeautiBond’s exclusive chemistry with unique dual adhesive monomers phosphonic acid and carboxylic acid, which enable predictable long-term bonding to both enamel and dentin. The phosphonic acid monomer of BeautiBond is more stable than phosphoric acid and enhances the bonding to tooth enamel while the carboxylic acid monomer facilitates a strong bond to dentin. BeautiBond has a HEMA-free composition, resulting in virtually no gingival blanching due to the composition and incorporation of a new polymerization catalyst.

At a thickness of 5 microns, BeautiBond only requires a single coat and no agitation, resulting in shorter working time and minimizing postoperative sensitivity. The light-cure and self-etching adhesive is ideal for a wide range of applications and is also ideal for highly esthetic and minimally invasive restorations.

Features & Benefits

· Unique dual adhesive monomers deliver equal bond strength to enamel and dentin
· Only 5-μm film thickness
· BeautiBond, which contains 6-MHPA, has bond strength comparable to that of leading multi-component bonding systems
· Limits the risk of postoperative sensitivity
· Single coat for shorter working time
· Unique dual adhesive monomers deliver equal bond strength to enamel and dentin
· BeautiBond delivered outstanding results in worldwide clinical trials

The strength and durability of BeautiBond has been validated through in vitro studies and multi-site clinical studies as well as SEM and TEM observation. These studies show the shear bond strength for non-etched enamel at 26.4 and 27.8 for dentin.* BeautiBond demonstrated comparable bond strength to that of other leading multi-component products before and after thermocycling with a simplified bonding procedure.

“Having served for years as a researcher and now in clinical practice, I find it essential that my adhesive does not create a chalk line around the restorative margins. BeautiBond has a thin film thickness that enables me to address me patients’ most pressing aesthetic concerns and a bond strength I can depend on.”
