Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Discuss the advantages and limitations of traditional and contemporary luting cements
  • Describe the role of bonding in the retention of contemporary indirect restorations that lack traditional retention and resistance form
  • Demonstrate a working knowledge of the role of luting cement selection and application in the performance of indirect restorations
