Ivoclar Vivadent has announced the introduction of SpeedCEM, a dual-curing, self-adhesive resin cement for the cementation of high-strength indirect restorations.

The product is intended for restorations such as those fabricated from metal, metal-ceramic (e.g. porcelain fused to metal), high strength ceramics (e.g., zirconia, lithium-disilicate) and fiber reinforced composites.

This new resin cement eliminates the need to condition the tooth preparation and the use of dentin-enamel bonding agents. As a result, SpeedCEM aims to provide a faster and more efficient way to cement high-strength restorative materials.

SpeedCEM is applied directly through an automix syringe, eliminating the need for additional mixing devices and applicators. It is available in three shades.
