Dental cements are a key link in the placement of laboratory-fabricated fixed prosthodontic restorations. The choices for these restorations include all-metal restorations (crowns and partial coverage); all-ceramic restorations either fabricated from feldspathic porcelain, pressed porcelain, and metal oxide; and porcelain-metal crowns. The clinician is also faced with choices for luting agents when placing posts and stainless steel crowns. It would be ideal if there was one cement that suited all clinical situations.
