4. Cementation

Indirect partial posterior restorations typically have low retention and visible margins, so they warrant a cement with high bond strength, wear resistance and color stability.

The universal resin cement, G-CEM ONE™ is your first choice of cement in these indications. Use it with G-CEM ONE™ Adhesive Enhancing Primer or G-Premio BOND™ when extra adhesion is needed.

When the preparation (e.g. for an overlay) provides sufficient retention/resistance, this step can be omitted altogether.
