Cementation & Bonding

From the desk of
Dr. Sabiha Bunek, Editor-in-Chief

  As new ceramics are introduced, the cementation process continues to adapt and evolve. There are a number of new resin cements on the market, some of which combine existing materials for convenience and simplified procedures, and some that have entirely new chemistry; however, we have yet to see a true universal cement for all indications.
The focus of this issue is to provide you with a brief overview of the properties, classifications and advantages of various resin and conventional cements as well as describe what makes universal bonding agents “unique.”
