No other resin cement offers such ease of use and consistency in procedure. Indeed, the unrivalled simplicity and predictability of PANAVIA V5 is nothing less than astonishing. Always the same cementation procedure. Always the special PANAVIA V5 Tooth Primer for the pretreatment of the tooth. And always CLEARFIL CERAMIC PRIMER PLUS to prime the restoration.

In 1983, Kuraray introduced the PANAVIA EX resin cement and, with it, our patented MDP adhesive monomer. Since then, the MDP monomer has repeatedly been clinically proved and has set the industry’s adhesive standard for over 30 years. PANAVIA V5 is the newest addition to the PANAVIA cement line and sets a new adhesive benchmark for resin cements by providing self-cure dentine bond strengths equal to our gold standard light-cure bonding agent CLEARFIL SE BOND.

PANAVIA V5 is able to provide strong bonding not just to hydroxyapatite but to metals and zirconia as well. It can be used for all clinical cementation indications, including on crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, bridges, crowns/abutments on implants, and posts. With PANAVIA V5, you always follow the same procedures prior to prosthetic cementation: roughen and prime the prosthesis, prime the tooth, and apply the cement to the prosthesis.

Aesthetic stability in shading

When it comes to maintaining shade in aesthetic cementation, conventional composite cements tend to discolour over time. With PANAVIA V5, Kuraray Noritake Dental presents an amine-free paste in five different shades—Universal (A2), Clear, Brown (A4), White and Opaque (only in self-cure mode)—that has been scientifically proved to demonstrate a lower level of post-curing colour variance than amine-based cements do. In addition, the new PANAVIA V5 try-in paste allows you to accurately simulate the shading of your cementation before it has been performed. As part of Kuraray Noritake Dental’s continued commitment to excellence in adhesion, this combination aims to enable the continued stability and natural appearance of the cement shading after curing.

PANAVIA V5 Tooth Primer

Almost all dual-cure resin cements available have been scientifically demonstrated to require light curing to achieve an acceptable bond strength. Thanks to Kuraray Noritake Dental’s focus on research and development, the MDP monomer-based PANAVIA V5 Tooth Primer contains a new catalyst that solves this issue. It provides an accelerated curing process from the moment the cement touches the primer, which, in turn, leads to a high degree of conversion from monomer to polymer. PANAVIA V5 presents a milestone in adhesion, as it offers improved bond strength for all tooth structures, even when used in the self-cure mode.


PANAVIA V5 is designed for use in conjunction with CLEARFIL CERAMIC PRIMER PLUS, a stable universal primer that contains both Kuraray Noritake Dental’s original MDP monomer and a silane monomer. This allows it to bond to all silica-based ceramics (including lithium disilicate), zirconia, composites and metals. It provides excellent bond strengths to all of these materials, as well as procedural simplicity.
