It is effective with a wide range of materials, from metal, composite, and porcelain to alumina and zirconia. For posts, BisCem can be used with prefabricated metal posts, nonmetal/fiber posts, and cast posts. *

Offering excellent handling properties, Bisco's BisCem is a paste/paste formula delivered in an automixing dual-syringe for ease of use no hand mixing and direct dispensing into the restoration.
