DUO-LINK UNIVERSAL™by Bisco
Here is the answer to your concerns regarding which cement to use for some of the new restorations we're now seeing from dental labs. I hope you're aware of the many opinions out there via the printed word and the Internet about which cement to use for which material. Now there is a new cement available from the proven chemistry of a trusted name in dental materials -- BISCO. Duo-Link Universal is an adhesive resin cement that has been specially formulated for the cementation of all indirect restorations. This includes crowns, bridges (fixed prostheses), inlays, onlays, and posts that are fabricated from metal, composite, porcelain, ceramic, zirconia, alumina, and CAD/CAM restorations. This cement is formulated for quick and easy removal of excess cement, and it is highly radiopaque for easy identification on X-rays for quick and effective diagnosis. This material has a high degree of conversion in light- and self-cure modes to ensure a strong, long-lasting restoration. Duo-Link Universal is easy to use in an auto-mix, dual-syringe that provides a consistent mix when prepared by an assistant. This material is made in two new shades. The Universal shade has some translucency at a low film thickness, and the Milky White shade is more opaque and can be used to mask darker tooth preparations. You can put your mind at ease when cementing restorations made of new materials by using this cement.
