Resin cements have become a staple in dental practice as the use of indirect restorations has increased dramatically. This book discusses and describes in detail the available resin cements, thoroughly examines factors that affect the clinical performance of resin cements, and discusses the different resin cements currently on the market. It is designed to provide clinicians with clear, evidence-based assistance in their choices. Decision trees and concept maps are provided to aid the clinician in choosing the right cement for particular clinical situations. The final part of the book is devoted to actual clinical procedures and provides step-by-step guidance on the cementation of inlays/onlays, veneers, and crowns and bridges made of different materials.
A Practical Clinical Guide to Resin Cements will serve as an invaluable reference that is ideal for consultation by clinicians prior to an important cementation procedure. It is written in such a way that otherwise complex ideas are simplified, ensuring that the discussion of each procedure and material is of maximal interest.
