KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • When choosing dental cement, the most important factors to consider are the restorative material and whether the preparation is retentive or non-retentive
  • All-ceramic restorations require additional considerations based on the specific material used
  • Self-adhesive resin cements are the latest innovation, providing ease of use, with higher strength, improved esthetics, and dual curing

Two key factors affecting the long-term success of indirect dental restorations are choosing the optimum dental cement for a specific clinical situation, and using it correctly. In order to attain a trouble-free procedure and a restoration with long-term success, the cement used must adhere to basic mechanical, biological, and handling requirements.

The latest innovation includes self-adhesive resin cements, which provide the ease of use associated with glass ionomer and resin-modified glass ionomer cements, but with higher strength, improved esthetics, and dual curing. These cements are resin based, so they can be used for cementation of glass-ceramics, such as lithium silicates, where glass ionomer and resin-modified glass ionomer cements are not recommended.
