Prelude One is a single-component, light-cured, universal dental bonding agent. It may be used as a self-etch or total-etch adhesive and has a light cure time of 10 seconds. Prelude One is compatible with light-cured, dual-cured, and self-cured composites with no activator required. Prelude One is designed to bond composite resins to surfaces including dentin, enamel, zirconia, alumina, metals, porcelain, lithium disilicate, and composite. Application involves a 20-second scrub on the tooth, air dry and 10-second light cure. Prelude One is supplied in 5 mL dropper bottles and 0.1 mL unit-dose vials. Prelude One was evaluated by 29 consultants in 972 uses. This universal bonding agent received a 96% clinical rating.

Product Features

Prelude One is a bonding agent that meets all clinical needs with a simple, quick application. The versatility to bond cements and composites to any substrate reduces the number of different products that dentists had to keep in the office. Dental assistants appreciated only having to learn one bonding system. The compatibility with dual- and self-cured composites is a positive feature. The unit-dose containers are easy to open and the well is wide enough to easily fit the brush. Prelude One wets the tooth evenly, leaving a glossy coat after air drying and light curing. Consultants liked the fact that the bonding procedure was the same whether they used Prelude One with the self-etch or total-etch technique.
