Simplicity Bond Strength

Direct Restoration: Shear Bond Strength Comparison (*)

While bond strengths don’t capture all the important characteristics for successful bonding, they do provide an outstanding benchmark for judging the potential for in vivo results. Below you will notice that Simplicity not only has superior bonding properties but also low standard deviations. The low standard deviations speak directly to the consistency you can expect from Simplicity.
