This is an email from Glen Willis:

John,
Great story! My Pulpdent rep came in today touting "the best porcelain repair system available"!! I said "Really, you want to bet?" He said sure I will bet you lunch. I pulled out two Procad blocks that had just milled and gave each of us one. He used the Pulpdent system while I used Interface/Sim2. He asked "you're not using any hydrofluoric acid etch?" I replied with a quiet confidence "No". We finished by bonding a 3 x 5mm cylinder of microhybrid composite to the blocks. We exchanged blocks and asked each other to break the composite from the block. I went first and snapped his composite from the block with moderate finger pressure. Now the good part-- he could not break my composite from the Procad block. I said "wait a minute-let me get you a pair of pliers!" I returned with the pliers and he subsequently broke the composite from the block. Ah-hah he says I was able to break your bond also. Not so fast---After further review-- I stated "look closely at the block and see what you broke?". The composite had sheared cohesively within itself!!! The Interface/Sim2 bond did not break!!! He left with his tail between his legs and promised me lunch. This made my day!

Kudos to you,

Glen





Thanks very much, Glen! Cool

Just stumbled onto this post. I wish I could have seen the rep's face. I'd like to add that I'm lovin' Interface to bond brackets to PFMs or all ceramics with the PowerProx technique. I think Rick DePaul is scared to use it because, in his words "I may break the procelain during bracket removal". Very Happy
