Simplifying cementation and bonding
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. Each type of cement has diﬀerent physical and mechanical properties, making no one cement alone suﬃcient for every application. To achieve success, clinicians need to be aware of the characteristics of each type of cement and use them appropriately.
