From reliable, tried-and-true dental materials that have been used for years to brand new materials just hitting the market, it is important for clinicians to continue to stay aware of the options available for restoration. In this product showcase, we've highlighted the top cements.
1. 3M™ RelyX™ Universal Resin Cement
3M RelyX Universal Resin Cement works as a standalone, self-adhesive cement and as an adhesive cement when combined with 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Plus Adhesive. Together they simplify your direct and indirect restorative workflows.
2. ACTIVA™ BioACTIVE-CEMENT™
ACTIVA BioACTIVE-CEMENT stimulates apatite formation and remineralization at the material-tooth interface. It knits together restoration and tooth, fills microgaps, reduces sensitivity, guards against secondary caries, and reliably seals margins.
3. Anchor® Core Build-Up Luting Material
Anchor is an innovative core build-up material with dual-cure chemistry. Anchor has been designed to be thin enough for use as a luting material while having the strength and thixotropic characteristics required for core applications. It is extremely radiopaque and contains fluoride.
4. BeautiCem SA
BeautiCem SA has high bond strength for crowns, bridges, inlays/onlays made from zirconia, alumina, porcelain, metals, resin-based, and most CAD/CAM materials; as well as pins & posts and splints. The anti-bacterial properties of its Giomer Technology reduce caries causing bacteria present in the preparation or infiltrating the margins.
5. EsteCem II
EsteCem II is a dual-cure universal cement system compatible with all restorative materials without the need for additional primers or activators, always following the same simple protocol.
6. G-CEM ONE™
G-CEM ONE is a universal, non-technique sensitive cement with high bond strength and excellent self-curing. G-CEM ONE can be used for a wide range of indications, including challenging cases thanks to its Touch Cure feature.
7. Infinity® SE
Infinity is a self-adhesive, self-etch, fluoride-releasing, resin-ionomer, dual-cure cement. Its high bond strength, tough fracture resistance, and low film thickness make Infinity the ideal material for cementing all restorations. Infinity is designed to minimize placement and postoperative sensitivity.
8. Maxcem Elite™ Chroma Universal Resin Cement
Meet all your indirect restoration needs to deliver universal versatility, higher bond strengths, predictable handling, and exceptional ease of use. Chroma dispenses pink before fading at the gel state, indicating the optimal time to clean up excess cement.
9. Meron Plus QM
Meron Plus QM is VOCO’s resin-modified, paste-to-paste glass ionomer cement in a QuickMix syringe for simplified mixing and application. Meron Plus QM uniquely offers higher adhesion values compared to traditional powder and liquid RMGI cements with a 5-10 second tack-cure for easy cleanup.
10. MTA REPAIR HP
ANGELUS developed a new formula: MTA REPAIR HP, a bioceramic putty form reparative cement that maintains all the chemical and biological properties of the original MTA, but changes its physical properties, making it easier to manipulate and insert into the dental cavity.
Single-component, moisture-activated temporary cement, ideal for short-term applications. Low film thickness. Eugenol free, won’t interfere with resin placements.
12. PANAVIA™ SA Cement Universal
PANAVIA SA Cement Universal is a true dual-cure self-adhesive resin cement which contains the unique LCSi monomer. This enables adhesion to virtually every material, including glass ceramics, without the need for a separate primer. PANAVIA SA Cement Universal delivers a strong, durable chemical bond to porcelain, lithium disilicate, and composite resin due to the unique silane coupling agent built into the paste (LCSi).
13. SEcure® Resin Cement System
SEcure is a 4-META adhesive resin cement system that delivers outstanding bond strength and sealing properties. Its penetration enhancing molecule quickly and efficiently permeates cut enamel and dentin to form a hybrid layer between the tooth and adhesive resin.
SoloCem self-adhesive cement saves time without sacrificing reliable bonding. MDP and 4-MET(A) monomers ensure good bonding values on a range of different materials and a variety of indications.
Delivering a strong bond to zirconia and most substrates, along with easy clean up and high radiopacity, TheraCem offers clinicians an effortless, reliable, and durable cementation of indirect restorations.
16. ZirCAD® Cement
ZirCAD Cement is a new resin modified glass ionomer cement designed for use with retentive preparations. This conventional cement is ideal for use with zirconia and metal-based restorations. ZirCAD Cement allows the clinician to deliver predictable cementation results case after case with its easy handling and quick clean-up.
