SpeedCEM Plus: User friendly and efficient

New Products

Professionals want to work with materials that are easy to use and offer flexibility. Ivoclar Vivadent is now introducing a resin cement that combines several benefits in a single product.

SpeedCEM Plus from Ivoclar Vivadent is a self-adhesive, self-curing resin cement with light-curing option. It provides the optimum combination of performance and user friendliness. With its optimised formulation, the cement is especially suited for restorations made of zirconia and metal ceramics and the cementation of restorations on implant abutments.

Excellent self-cure properties

Not every restoration allows a complete and uniform light-cure. Strong self-curing capabilities provide an additional measure of safety when seating restorations that are opaque or impervious to light. SpeedCEM Plus achieves a high bond strength on zirconia, on non-precious metal - such as titanium - and on dentin without necessitating the application of light.

User friendly protocol

The new resin cement offers a high level of user friendliness. Easy clean-up is one of its distinguishing features. Optional light curing enables users to tack cure excess cement and then remove it in a few large pieces. In addition, the cement enables flexible use in different situations: It establishes a reliable bond on dry and moist dentin after both light-curing and self-curing. The cement is easy to distinguish from the enamel and dentin due to its high radiopacity. Remaining excess cement and secondary caries can be easily diagnosed on later X-ray evaluations.

Efficient procedure

Given its self-adhesive properties, SpeedCEM Plus can be used without phosphoric acid etching and without dentin adhesives. Restorations made of zirconia or non-precious alloy can be cemented without additional primer. Processing times and the risk for application errors are reduced. Offering an efficient procedure and beneficial physical properties, the cement contributes to the long-term success of dental treatments.

Ivoclar Vivadent recommends using Ivoclean for the effective cleaning of restorations contaminated with saliva during the intraoral try-in.
