I am brand new to using Surpass and used it per the instructions to bond porcelain veneers last week. It seemed that I had a lot more resin cement flash to remove which was bonded very tenaciously. I'm wondering if it is because of the self etching nature, the surpass is extending beyond the prepped area into the interproximal and root surfaces. When you phosph. etch, it is easy to control what is etched and what is not. Just wondering if this is a challenge only I'm having and if there are good tips for avoiding the frustrating finish.

You could try limiting the exposure of the Surpass 1 by using a round Micro-applicator. I am guessing that you're using a light-cured only veneer luting material. Dual-cure resins offer a distinct advantage in this situation.

John, Chris and Scott,

Any way to package A2 and white in one cartridge for ease of placement of veneers, instead of mixing on a pad? Thanks Cool

How similar is Anchor A2 shade to Variolink Transparent? Any hope of try-in shades?
