Consultant's Comments:
  • Need extension tips for the capsules for post cementation.
  • Hard to clean up if you wait too long, but easy if you get it at the gel state.
  • Great color with the available shades.
  • After the two to four seconds of light exposure, the excess comes off very easily.
Description:
G-CEM is a dual-cured, fluoride-releasing, self-etching, self-adhesive resin cement. It is recommended for use with all PFM crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, all-ceramic restorations (including Zirconia-based) and metal/fiber endodontic posts. G-CEM combines the technology of G-Bond 7th-generation bonding agent with the properties of resin-modified glass ionomer cement. It contains water and functional monomers (4-MET and phosphoric acid ester) for self-adhesive properties to dentin and enamel. According to the manufacturer, this combination increases the initial hydrophilicity of the cement, allowing penetration into dentinal tubules before the material sets and becomes hydrophobic. The dual-cured mode allows for easy clean-up and higher strength within the first 10 minutes. G-CEM is available in individual capsules with a set time of two minutes and 15 seconds and is available in shades A2, A03, Translucent, and BO1. Twenty-five consultants evaluated G-CEM in the cementation of over 430 restorations. This product received an 88% clinical rating.
