Resin Cement Suits Zirconium Oxide and Metal Ceramic Restorations

Dentistry Today


With its optimized formulation, Ivoclar Vivadent’s SpeedCEM Plus, a self-adhesive, self-curing resin cement with a light-curing option, is especially suited for restorations made of zirconium oxide and metal ceramics as well as the cementation of restorations on implant abutments.

Not every restoration allows a complete and uniform light cure. Strong self-curing capabilities provide an additional measure of safety when seating restorations that are opaque or impervious to light. SpeedCEM Plus achieves a high bond strength to zirconium oxide, nonprecious metal such as titanium, and dentin without exposure to light.

SpeedCEM Plus establishes a reliable bond on dry and moist dentin after both light-curing and self-curing, and it is easy to distinguish from enamel and dentin due to its high radiopacity. Remaining excess cement and secondary caries can be easily diagnosed on later x-ray evaluations.   

Given its self-adhesive properties, SpeedCEM Plus can be used without phosphoric acid etching and without dentin adhesives. Restorations made of zirconium oxide or nonprecious alloy can be cemented without additional primer. Processing times and the risk of application errors are reduced.
