Product Description
In 2002, responding to the demand from dentists for less technique sensitive cements, 3M ESPE launched RelyX Unicem Self-Adhesive Universal Resin Cement for the placement of indirect restorations including ceramic, composite and metal crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and posts. With high bond strength to both dentin and enamel and the etching, priming, and bonding steps eliminated from the procedure, RelyX Unicem Cement was quickly adopted by dentists who were ready to reap the benefits of performance and convenience delivered in one simple product.

Unicem pros and cons
This I believe was the first cement on the market that, in addition to being self-etching, also exhibited neutral expansion. This is an important feature for all-porcelain crowns, especially older products which tended to crack from internal stresses when a net-expansion cement was used, which was the norm for the market. Retention is excellent in almost all circumstances. I have heard some question its color stability and cite a propensity for post op sensitivity but I have not seen any unusual problems with these issues. I have used this cement more than any other since 2002. I prefer the "clicker" to the capsule, since the usual capsule doesn't yield quite enough cement to confidently fill multiple units. They also sell a large capsule, but it is so large that it is clumsy, so I do not recommend it. The only potential drawback I have seen is that it sets rather quickly. I consider this an advantage, but if the operator is not quick, it could set prior to full seating. Additionally, the removal of excess can be difficult, so I start to remove it as soon as it becomes "doughy" The company does not recommend it for posts, probably because of quick set-up time, but I use it for this purpose routinely as I consider the neutral expansion feature critical when posts are placed to reduce root fractures. As a side note, it does taste awful, so patients will wrinkle their noses when its used.
