Dental luting plays a vital role in ensuring the long-term success and stability of various dental prostheses used in restorative dentistry. It is the technique used to secure indirect dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and veneers, to the natural tooth structure. It involves the use of a dental cement which acts as an adhesive between the restoration and the tooth.
With so many dental luting agents on the market, it can be difficult to choose the correct luting agent for the restoration at hand. That’s why understanding the properties of the various luting agents available – and how they apply to different restoration requirements – is critical to ensuring long-lasting restorations.
In this webinar, Dr RL Castillo, Professional Development Manager at GC Australasia Dental, joins Avant Dental’s Ian Feigen and Richard Salter to share her expert insights on how to select the right luting agent for a range of indirect restoration applications.
– Assessing the requirements of the restoration
