Course Description



In recent years, Advancements in high-strength ceramics have attracted increasing attention for use in oral rehabilitation. The use of different types of cements has been proposed for luting polycrystalline (zirconia) and glass ceramics (Feldspathic porcelain and Emax), these adhesive resin cements are preferred owing to its better retention, marginal fit and providing a chemical and mechanical bond to the sub structure, that determines the long term success and ideal esthetic outcome of the restorations.
To achieve reliable adhesion to these ceramics and the steps involved in the surface pre-treatment offers specific challenges and it must be carefully considered. Several surface pre-treatment approaches have been proposed to address these challenges. The aim of this course is to critically analyze these challenges.


  1. To review advancements in the properties of ceramics and their indications using literature based approach.
  2. To critically analyze using evidence based approach the long term success of restorations with different surface pre-treatments using case based scenarios.
  3. To review the different luting cements available and their properties.
  4. The Do’s and Don’t’s in surface pre-treatments of ceramics.
