Ivoclean (Ivoclar Vivadent) is a simple, effective product for cleaning all types of indirect restorations prior to final cementation. This product is applied to the restoration after try-ins are complete. Simply scrub on the cement side of the restoration for 20 seconds, rinse, and dry. Then cement the restoration with your choice of cement. Our editors and consultants liked this product and many of them have incorporated it into their practices. It has no detrimental effect on the bond strength of the cement to the restoration and may in fact enhance this bond!
