Cementation is a multifaceted procedure in restorative and esthetic dentistry, principally involving the adaptation of cement to the tooth surface in a manner that prevents the detachment of a restoration during patient function. In each procedure, the goal of the practitioner is to create a lasting bond and marginal adaptation of the luting cement between the indirect restoration and the remaining tooth structure. This article highlights the relevant principles of adhesion and presents criteria aimed at improving clinicians' decision making while providing daily patient care.
