SEcure® is one of the most effective resin cement systems available today, providing stronger, more reliable bonds to cut enamel and dentin than other leading brands. How? By way of its penetration enhancing molecule— 4-META. This unique monomer quickly and efficiently permeates cut enamel and dentin to form a hybrid layer between the tooth and adhesive resin. SEcure’s biocompatibility not only creates a dependable bond between prosthesis and tooth surface, it also occludes tubules to guard against external stimuli, bacteria and other sensitivity-causing agents. It virtually shuts down microleakage, too, for stain-free margins.
As far as application goes, SEcure is a piece of cake. You start out by conditioning the tooth with SEcure’s low viscosity, self-etching primer, or you can use Brush&Bond® instead of the primer. Simply allow it to sit undisturbed for 10-20 seconds and then gently air-blow the liquid for 5 seconds to ensure that the area is not overly wet.
NOTE: If using Brush&Bond® or Brush&Bond® Universal instead of the SEcure primer, you’ll need to light cure the adhesive.
Next, apply SEcure’s resin cement. It flows effortlessly out of its automix syringe to provide clean, accurate placement in the prosthesis. It’s conveniently dual-cured, so you can light-cure it in about 40 seconds, or allow it to self-cure in approximately 2 ½ minutes. This twofold convenience means you can use SEcure for anterior as well as posterior cases, and in areas where your curing light can’t reach—under PFM crowns, down post holes—wherever!
Clean-up is a breeze. Upon seating the prosthesis, you can either immediately wipe away the excess cement while it’s still soft, or peel it off after a 2– 3-second exposure to any dental curing light.
As for the results? You’ll get a securely-placed restoration, a patient who won’t experience post-op sensitivity and savings that will go directly into your wallet!
For best results: Make sure to paint the SEcure resin cement onto the prep as well as the prosthesis. This lowers the surface tension and allows for maximum cement wetting and adhesion.
