OptiBond XTR earned 4.6 stars out of a possible 5.0.
Can handle virtually all adhesive tasks. Easy to use with really good directions. Only two components. Most evaluators reported no sensitivity. No dislodgements reported during evaluation period. Thin film thickness facilitates complete seating of indirect restorations. Two dispensing options.
Strong odor of both primer and adhesive. Scrubbing directive is difficult to accomplish clinically. Still some cautions using it with veneers.
OptiBond pedigree, nearly universal use, and easy application move XTR to the top of the category despite the smell.
