Zirconia Crown Placement

The success of restorations depends on a variety of factors. Some including, treatment planning, material selection, preparation, and impression taking. Long-term functionality is of the upmost importance. Over the years, manufacturers that specialize in dental products have discovered a wide variety of materials that produce great results. Some of these diverse materials include adhesive bonding agents and light-cured, resin-based cements which have been widely acclaimed for placing glass-ceramic and aesthetic restorations. More specifically, glass ionomer cements have been beneficial for high-carries-risk patients. The risk level for these patients is dependent on their ability to promote remineralization and prevent secondary caries. However, as traditional glass ionomer materials cure, imperfections can be left in the dentin/cement interface. Such imperfections can lead to the formation of marginal gaps and discrepancies when glass ionomer cements are used to secure zirconium oxide-based all-ceramic restorations. In regards to retention, research has shined light on the fact that adhesive bonding agent and composite resin is not always consistent. Therefore, dentists have shifted their focus to alternatives such as more retentive, biocompatible, and biorestorative options. As a result, bonding agents and composite resin cements that demonstrate remineralizing and antibacterial properties to combat recurrent carries have been introduced.
