Adhesive cementation of prosthetic restorations: Contemporary Aspects
The esthetic outcome of dental treatment has become recently, an issue of great importance. This is the reason why contemporary dental treatment utilizes a lot more all-ceramic restorations than it used to. Despite the rapid evolution in the field of all-ceramic systems, most of these restorations depend their longevity on their cementation with resin cements. However, since resin cements are considered to be technique sensitive materials, dental material companies have focused on developing products that simplify clinical procedures. Therefore, new cement products that might have different indications and instructions for use, have been constantly launched on the market. Among this large number of materials, the general dentist might have a difficulty in choosing the right product for the right application. The aim of the present paper is the concise presentation of the adhesive systems and types of resin cements available on the market, as well as their manipulation, in order to facilitate the general dentist in the correct choice and proper use of product.
