Composite to Ceramic Adhesive Cementation

Nowadays, the development of adhesive dentistry has also led to significant improvements in materials used in indirect restorative applications. During clinical applications, adhesive cementation is one of the most comprehensive steps for bonding of composite and ceramic indirect materials to tooth tissues. In this presentation, the concept of adhesion and the clinical application and steps of current adhesive materials will be reviewed, all cementation steps of indirect composite, oxide and glass ceramic materials including surface preparation steps will be discussed interactively with clinical case examples.

Complications and Solutions in Adhesive Restorations

Increasing aesthetic demands of the patients has led the dentists whether to perform adhesive restorations both in anterior and posterior dentition. Although the actual implementation of dentin adhesive systems may expose successful results immediately, especially in the long term clinical performance, insufficiency and degradation in the resin-dentin interface remains inevitable.
Both for direct and indirect restorations, basic principles and mechanisms of adhesive bonding capacity is closely associated with the application techniques. Starting with the diagnosis the patient through the process of the treatment, characteristics of the hard tissue, lesion and the type of adhesive material used mainly constructs an important role on the clinical success to reconfigure and achieve the desired function, phonation and esthetic outcome. 
The current panel will include the current and evidence-based information on the contemporary adhesive dentistry and address the clinical issues to handle the risks and decrease the complications of the adhesive applications which enables to maintain bio-functional conservative restorations.
