Course Description

Having successfully negotiated the planning, preparation, and prescription of your indirect restoration, the cementation stage represents the culmination of all your efforts, like a climber reaching the top of the mountain. This stage is not difficult, but a successful outcome need as much care as the preceding stages, especially with all-ceramics materials. Once a restoration is cemented there is no chance for modification or repeat. You have to get it right from the very first time.

Resin cements have been available to the dental profession for three decades, but the number of clinical steps involved and their technique sensitivity have made resin cementation a complex process. On the other hand, the clinical and physical properties of resin cements are far superior to phosphate, polycarboxylate and glass-ionomer cements. At this point of the history is more or less obvious. Around 10-14 years ago, self-adhesive resin cements were launched to the market promising a much faster and easier process… but can we use them for all the indications… do we really have an advantage using them?

The course will present:

  • History and the different types of cements
  • Problems associated with cementation
  • Indications for the different materials
  • Preparation techniques and step by step procedures
  • Typical mistakes during cementation
  • Light curing techniques
  • Tips and tricks for different indications

Course Objectives

The participants will learn:

  • About the advantages and disadvantages of the different dental materials for indirect restorations
  • To understand why to remove the excess before or after curing depending from the indication
  • How to cement in detail all type of ceramic restorations
  • How thin ceramic restorations can be depending from the cement material
  • To pre-cure and tack veneers and inlay
