Do I Cement or Bond and With What?
Bonding to Ceramic
Macromechanical- no sharp edges or surfaces (promotes
cracks). Create retentive preparations rather than alter the
inside of the restoration.
Micromechanical- acid etching and sand blasting. Acid
etching with HydroFluoric acid works well for silica based
materials because it will etch glass. Phosphoric acid does
nothing to any surfaces except enamel and dentin.
However, acid etching won’t touch alumina oxide and
zirconia cores and may cause cracking. Sandblasting works
best for both.
Chemical- only with silane and only if silica is present. Use
HF to etch silica-based ceramics.
Cement Types
Luting cements- cements that achieve retention by
filling in the gaps between the tooth and the restoration.
Adhesion is at best a surface phenomenon of wetting
and micro-mechanical interlocking.
Bonding cements- stronger than luting cements so “gap
filling” offers greater retention. Bonding to tooth
structure through the smear layer or into dentinal
tubules is more than just a surface phenomenon.
Bonding to restorations can be achieved through the use
of primers which allow for the chemical adhesion to
inorganic fillers, or metal oxides.
Luting Cements
Used almost exclusively with metal based restorations.
Self curing, with generally two components (liquid/powder
or paste/paste) for mixing.
Four classes: zinc phosphate; polycarboxylate; conventional glass
ionomer; resin-modified glass ionomer (marginal Fl release).
Of these classes, only conventional glass ionomer and RMGI
cements have true indications in modern dentistry. Their
indications are limited to metal; metal-based; or core
strengthened, glass-free ceramic restorations with retentive
preparations. Examples: FujiCem, RelyX Luting, Ketac Cem
Luting Cements
Paste/paste system
Easy mixing, radiopaque, 3min. working time
Low film thickness (10 microns ).
Do not use a dentin conditioner (removes smear layer).
Fluoride release, low solubility
Bonding Cement
Composite resin cements: are modified
composite resin materials with high adhesion,
low solubility, and good esthetics.
Like any direct composite materials, this class of
cements must be used with a bonding system.
There are Three subtypes: total-etch system, selfetching system, self-adhesive systems.
Composite Resin Cements
Total-etch system- most systems are dual cured or light cured.
The steps are as similar and diverse as that for direct
composite restorations. Examples: Variolink II, Calibra,
Duolink, RelyX Veneer cement. In general, any of these systems
are moisture intolerant.
Self-etching systems- Typically a dual cured, two part system
where the acid etching and bonding steps are replaced with a
self-etching primer mixed and activated with a bonding
agent. The manufacturer’s instructions usually require PhD
in interpretive science to decipher. Examples: Panavia F
Composite Resin Cements
Self-adhesive cements- 3M-RelyX UniCem is
the #1 selling cement in the US market. It is a
capsule dispensed dual cured cement that
eliminates separate etching and bonding
steps. It is uniquely moisture tolerant, and has
a low risk of post- operative sensitivity. It has a
broad range of applications and a simplified
technique. Kerr MaxCem.
Resin Cements – RelyX Unicem 2 and RelyX
Choosing The Right Cement
The determination of the cement type begins with the clinical
situation not vice versa. This is determined in the treatment
planning stage.
The key factors that determine restoration and cement type are:
esthetic demands, ability to maintain a dry field, occlusal forces,
remaining tooth structure, prep design (retentive or nonretentive), and margin location.
In general, weak restorations must be adhesively bonded with
strong cements.
Ceramic restorations require either micro-etching or acid-etching
of the undersurface and silane coating to achieve bonding with
resin cements; this is not achievable with luting cements.

Differences Between Self and Total Etch
Enamel acid-etching involves demineralizing portions of hydroxyapatite crystals to
develop a porous surface for micro-mechanical bonding. Today, acid-etching is
performed on dentin, and with a total-etch (TE) or self-etch (SE) technique.
Total Etch - In the TE technique, the outer layer of dentin is decalcified, removing
the smear layer and opening the underlying dentin tubules. This exposes collagen
fibers that are then infiltrated with a primer, followed by the application of a resin
adhesive. Primer and adhesive are applied simultaneously in many systems. In this
procedure, it is critical that you completely seal dentin tubules to avoid bacterial
invasion and/or sensitivity. Generally this technique is used for larger direct
restorations and indirect restorations.
Self Etch - Rather than removing the smear layer, the SE approach involves the
application of an acidic primer that will promote micro-mechanical bonding of the
adhesive to the smear layer and the underlying dentin. This technique minimizes
the potential for postoperative sensitivity by preventing the collapse of the collagen
fibers that can occur after conditioning and drying in the TE process. The SE
technique has less clinical history, but appears to be best in less invasive procedures
such as shallow Class I or Class II restorations.
