Review: Porcelain Technology and Resin Cements

Should you cement a veneer with Rely-X Luting?

What’s the difference between Procera and e.max? 

I’ve written a few posts about the advances made in ceramic technology and the chemistry of resin cements.  When we consider these together, we can do some pretty cool things.  But  I must admit that thinking of all the possible combinations can get overwhelming.

So here’s a round-up of my posts to refresh your memories and simplify the matter for us.  First, let’s define the 3 kinds of porcelain and the 4 kinds of resin cement:

Okay, now let’s dig deeper into some clinical examples of using these things:

Still with me?  Good.  Now let’s put it all together and discuss how to get this into practice:

Phosphoric etch is used to "clean" a feldspathic veener that was tried in. It has already been treated with hydrofluoric acid by the laboratory. Monbond Plus (silane) is applied and the veneer is ready for cementation.
