Clinical Protocols for Conventional and Adhesive Cementation: Case Sensitive Material and Technique Selection Criteria
Prosthetic restorations can be evaluated in two groups as full-coverage and partial coverage regarding their total surface area on tooth. Both adhesive and conventional techniques can be preferred for full-coverage restorations, while adhesive cementation is almost mandatory for partial-coverage restorations.  Since a wide variety of materials exist in the dental market for these purposes, material choice in terms of the restorations type and indication may be sometimes difficult. In this presentation, clinical protocols will be discussed on the cement alternatives spesific for the abutment morphology and substrate for implant prostheses, teeth, laminate veneers, occlusal veneers, and inlay/onlay restorations with current literature update. Videos for related clinical situations will be displayed.
