Clinical Case: Self-adhesive Cementation of a 6-unit Anterior Zirconia Bridge

Using 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Plus Adhesive and 3M™ RelyX™ Universal Resin Cement.

About the Case

This 45-year-old patient presented with several missing teeth, tooth decay and the primary wish of rehabilitation of the anterior zone. After consultation on functional, esthetic and economical aspects a 6-unit monolithic zirconia bridge on four abutment teeth was chosen for the anterior reconstruction. In this case the optional priming of the zirconia with 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Plus Adhesive was done after sand-blasting. On the tooth side a self-adhesive protocol was employed with 3M™ RelyX™ Universal Resin Cement.
