Updates in Dental Biomaterials: Dental Adhesives, Cements and Ceramics



A significant factor in the clinical success of modern esthetic dentistry has been the development of dental adhesives, cements, and ceramics. Advancements in dental biomaterials have facilitated the growth of conservative dentistry, strengthening and supporting the remaining tooth structure without the need to remove healthy tooth tissue. The creation of a strong, durable, and bonded interface between materials provided important benefits and broadened the application of materials such as low-strength ceramics and indirect composites. This session presents modern aspects of the application of new simplified adhesive systems and cements to enamel, dentin, and ceramic materials.


  • Explore the pros and cons of self-adhesive and universal systems
  • Discuss the most reliable clinical protocols for bonding and cementation of Fiber-Posts, Glass-based Ceramics (i.e., Lithium Disilicate), and Zirconia.
