“Simply apply and dry, and you’re done”: CLEARFIL CERAMIC PRIMER PLUS

Combining ease of use and excellent viscosity, CLEARFIL CERAMIC PRIMER PLUS is a stable and universal prosthetic primer designed for all restorations. By incorporating Kuraray Noritake Dental’s original MDP monomer and a silane monomer, it is able to provide an enhanced adhesive surface for ceramics, hybrid ceramics, composites and even metals. CLEARFIL CERAMIC PRIMER PLUS is best used in conjunction with the adhesive resin cement PANAVIA V5 to ensure durable restorations.

The key to CLEARFIL CERAMIC PRIMER PLUS’s performance is in the monomers it possesses. The MDP monomer strongly bonds to metals and zirconia, while the silane coupling agent MPS efficiently adheres to composites and all silica-based ceramics. “What makes CLEARFIL CERAMIC PRIMER PLUS different to other primers is its stability,” said Peter Schouten, Technical Manager at Kuraray Noritake Benelux. “Normally, activated silanes are very unstable. However, the well-balanced formula of CLEARFIL CERAMIC PRIMER PLUS provides it with a shelf life of three years after production, making it easy and predictable to use.”

Procedural simplicity

Every element of CLEARFIL CERAMIC PRIMER PLUS is designed to deliver maximal procedural simplicity. It is packaged in an easy-to-squeeze bottle that dispenses the solution easily and accurately. Whereas other similar products need to be left in place for one minute or more, this primer is immediately effective upon application. “CLEARFIL CERAMIC PRIMER PLUS benefits the dentists by offering a reliable primer for all materials, without being difficult to apply or use,” said Schouten. “From titanium to zirconia, from lithium disilicate to composite—simply apply and dry, and you're done.”


A resin cement with unrivalled procedural simplicity and predictability, PANAVIA V5 is the latest addition to Kuraray Noritake Dental’s PANAVIA family. It sets a new standard for adhesion, allowing for self-cure dentine bond strengths equal to our gold-standard light-cure bonding agent, CLEARFIL SE BOND. PANAVIA V5 offers natural aesthetic stability in shading through its amine-free paste, which is available in five shades and has been scientifically proven to demonstrate a lower level of post-curing colour variance than amine-based cements.


Providing strong bonding to not just hydroxyapatite, but to metals and zirconia as well, PANAVIA V5 is designed for use in conjunction with CLEARFIL CERAMIC PRIMER PLUS. The cementation procedure is efficient and effective: use PANAVIA V5 Tooth Primer for the pretreatment of the tooth, CLEARFIL CERAMIC PRIMER PLUS for the priming of the restoration, and PANAVIA V5 for the cementation.
