Ultradent 90-second Porcelain Etch is used to etch porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and fractured dental porcelain. Ultradent 60-second Silane is used after hydrofluoric acid etching to prepare the surface for bonding resin.
Studies have demonstrated that Silane, when used with Porcelain Etch and a quality bonding resin, yields the highest bond strength to porcelain when compared with other porcelain bonding products. Both Porcelain Etch and Silane may be used intraorally or extraorally.
- Porcelain Etch is a viscous, buffered 9% hydrofluoric acid - Etch is easy to control and place - Will not stain composite or resin cement - Silane is a single-component solution - Yields highest porcelain-to-resin bond strengths - Porcelain Etch and Silane may also be used on lithium disilicate (IPS e.max® ) restorations
