What I quite often hear from our clients is how pleased they are when placing an IPS e.max restoration, mostly due to the flexibility of cementation selection.
Crowns and bridges, for example, can be cemented according to adhesive, self-adhesive and conventional methods, whereas inlays and veneers can be cemented adhesively as usual.
The Ivoclar Vivadent cementation assortment presents the dental practitioner with the opportunity to select the method best suited to the application.
Once restorations are conditioned with Monobond S, they can be placed with adhesive or self-adhesive cementation materials.
Offering excellent results, the dual-curing, highly aesthetic luting composite Variolink II has been successfully used for more than ten years.
Especially used for the adhesive cementation of veneers, the Variolink veneer can also be used to enhance shade and translucency effects.
The classical self-curing glass ionomer cement, Vivaglass CEM, is great for the cementation of high-strength ceramics like IPS e.max. With its particularly transparent glass filler, it’s an ideal choice for aesthetic results.
If you’ve got an experience with cementation and the Vivaglass, e.max or other products you’d like to share, feel free to leave a comment here, or get in touch on Biterite’s social media outlets:
