VITA Zahnfabrik recommends RelyX™ Unicem Cement for cementation of Vitablocs® crowns
ST. PAUL, Minn. – (September 9, 2010) – RelyX™ Unicem Self-Adhesive Resin Cement from 3M ESPE has been officially recommended by VITA Zahnfabrik for adhesive cementation of VITABLOCS® feldspar ceramic crowns. Users of VITABLOCS – which are offered in different variants with a monochromatic, polychromatic or three-dimensional block structure – can now benefit from RelyX Unicem cement’s well-known advantages, including fewer work steps, easy handling and reliable clinical performance proven in millions of applications.
The advantage of self-adhesive resin cements as opposed to conventional resin materials is their fast, easy and safe application. With RelyX Unicem cement, time consuming steps such as separate etching, priming and bonding of the dentin surface are eliminated. Therefore, the cementation process becomes easier and less prone to error.
RelyX Unicem cement, however, is not only characterized by its ease of use, but its strong, reliable bond strength andlong-term stability, which result from the unique chemical composition of the product. Additional benefits of RelyX Unicem cement include high moisture tolerance, low risk of post-operative sensitivity and high color stability leading to esthetic restoration margins, all of which have been confirmed in multiple internal and external studies.
The RelyX Unicem cement is available in the convenient Clicker™ Dispenser, as well as Aplicap™ and Maxicap™ Capsules. As of September 2010, an additional option will be available: RelyX™ Unicem 2 Automix Self-Adhesive Resin Cement will be offered in a convenient automix syringe so users may choose their preferred delivery system.
Whether cementing VITABLOCS or other all-ceramic, PFM, metal or composite restorations, RelyX Unicem cement provides many benefits that make it the material of choice for dentists worldwide. .
