3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Plus Adhesive

  • Nearly a decade ago, 3M introduced the first truly universal adhesive. Since then, 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Adhesive has been clinically proven and has become the industry's most researched universal adhesive.¹

    Now, the next evolution is here: 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Plus Adhesive offers all the benefits of its predecessor with new levels of control and predictability.


One next-generation adhesive. Two steps forward for minimally invasive dentistry.

    Added radiopacity

    Radiolucency under an existing restoration can lead to misdiagnosis – and potentially invasive overtreatment. Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive is the first universal adhesive with dentine-like radiopacity, helping to overcome this issue.

  • Cross-section of tooth with caries-affected dentine
    Bonds & seals caries-affected dentine

    Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive gives you confidence when performing minimally invasive preparations because it has the same high bond strength to caries-affected dentine as to sound dentine.

    In addition to the excellent quality of restoration margins¹, it seals caries-affected dentine by forming a well-defined, void-free hybrid layer. Because “the seal is the deal” to prevent secondary decay.
