Restorative dentistry has advanced at a great pace in the past decade, offering a myriad of new and updated materials that are stronger and more aesthetic than ever before. Dentists are now able to deliver more natural-looking and durable restorations, which continues to raise expectations for patients. But even the most beautiful restorations won’t be of any use if they don’t last, which is why dentists need a reliable and easy-to-use cement.
In response to this market need, GC America launched, G-CEM LinkForce, a multi-purpose, dual-cured, radiopaque, universal adhesive resin cement system. This one convenient kit is all you need for all restorative procedures, from lithium disilicate, ceramics and hybrid ceramics, as well as zirconia, PFMs and precious metals, glass fiber posts, and veneers.
G-CEM LinkForce offers secured adhesion in one system, with three base elements:
- G-Premio BOND™: bonding to preparations with no compromises
Bonds to teeth, metal abutments and composite core build-ups
- G-Multi Primer™: ensures a stable adhesion to restorations
Stable chemical adhesion to surfaces, even on precious metals
- G-CEM LinkForce: provides a strong bond in virtually all indications
Universal clinical use
Since its introduction to the market, clinicians have frequently endorsed G-CEM LinkForce. The product received a rating of ‘excellent’ by The Dental Advisor Editor’s Choice and was evaluated by 26 consultants who found it to be a complete and versatile system for multiple applications. It was lauded for aesthetic results in terms of consistency of shades, as well as good viscosity and low film thickness. It was further commended for its great consistency of mix, being easy to use and clean up, as well as having excellent laminated instructions for use.
