Ceramir Crown & Bridge is a permanent, radiopaque, bioceramic luting cement supplied in capsules. It is indicated for conventional cementation of metal-, lithium disilicate-, alumina- and zirconia-based restorations. The capsules contain glass ionomer powder and bioceramic (calcium aluminate) powder plus water. Activation of the capsule with the Ceramir Activator is done prior to mixing in a 4000-5000 rpm mixer. Dispensing requires use of either the Ceramir Applicator, Aplicap Applier (3M ESPE) or the AC Applicator (VOCO). Ceramir Crown & Bridge is self-setting with a working time of two minutes and a setting time of four to eight minutes. The cement is designed to be biocompatible and to resist acid and acid-producing bacteria. It requires no etching, priming, bonding, or conditioning. Each box contains 20 capsules of cement and manufacturer’s instructions. Ceramir Crown & Bridge was evaluated by 20 consultants in 314 uses. This product received a 92% clinical rating.
Ceramir has very good viscosity, and a smooth and creamy mix which coats the surface of the restoration well. Removal of excess cement after one to two minutes is very easy. Sixty percent would switch to Ceramir Crown & Bridge and 85% would recommend it.
A capsule activator, mixer and applicator are required for use.
Perform clean-up in the rubbery phase, around three minutes after mixing.
Do not use with lower-strength glass ceramics.
Store at room temperature.
