A vast majority of the indirect restorations place in the dental practice currently are either fabricated from zirconia or lithium disilicate. The popularity of these materials is due to their excellent esthetics, durability and can be fabricated at a reasonable fee. But these materials are different and a significant factor in the clinical longevity of these materials is following correct clinical protocol at delivery and an understanding of the what the best choices of cement materials that are currently available. This CE webinar will discuss the appropriate protocol for the pretreatment of these two materials to maximize the retention of each type of restoration.
