Bonding to Ceramics and Resin Cements

Course Outline

The course is designed to update clinicians on the current evidence of effectively bonding resin composites and resin cements to ceramics. We will discuss advantages and limitations of current adhesives, how to avoid incompatibility issues with resin cement, how to properly prepare ceramic surfaces for bonding to resin cements, and the importance of knowing what is your lab doing to your ceramics, among several other clinical procedures. The scientific evidence will be introduced along with clinical cases to illustrate.

Learning Objectives

Attendants shall be able to identify the best evidence-based procedures, techniques and materials to bond to ceramic substrates in dentistry.
