Reviews

Clearfil SE Bond 2 earned 4.6 stars out of a possible 5.0.
Strengths:
Most (81%) evaluators found its ability to bond to dual-cured/self-cured materials when mixed with the DC Activator to be a significant upgrade on its predecessor, allowing it to be used for virtually all procedures. Good bond strengths in self-cured mode even when DC Activator/Bond mixture is not light-cured as a separate step. Virtually no sensitivity was reported. Easy to use. Available in bottles and unidose. The dispenser received high marks from several evaluators.

Weaknesses:
Still have to etch enamel with PA to get the best results. Several evaluators felt the Bond resin was overly thick. Dispenser doesn’t accommodate nor is there a kit that includes DC Activator. Can’t use the unidose in the dualcured/self-cured mode.

Bottom line:
With the strong legacy of its classic namesake, it’s still the gold standard for self-etchers and its expanded versatility makes it even better, but you still need to etch enamel for optimal results and, with the three components, it’s not just plug and play.
