What is the difference between variolink and multilink?

What is the difference between variolink and multilink?

In the Variolink II group, zirconia surfaces were silanized (Monobond-S), and adhesive resin (Heliobond) was applied and photopolymerized. In the Multilink Automix group, one coat of Metal/Zirconia Primer was applied with a microbrush, left to react for 180 s, and dried using oil-free air.

What is Multilink Automix?

Multilink Automix is an adhesive luting system for the cementation of indirect restorations made of silicate and oxide ceramics (e.g. IPS e. max), metal and metal-ceramics and composite resins. Advantages: An improved formula optimised to further facilitate the clean-up of excess material.

What is the best cement for zirconia crowns?

PANAVIA™ SA Cement Plus is an ideal everyday cement for zirconia crowns and bridges. It has a high concentration of MDP to provide high bond strength to zirconia and natural teeth without additional surface treatment.

Can you use Multilink on zirconia?

Multilink Automix was used to cement zirconia, lithium disilicate and leucite-reinforced inlays, onlays and crowns in posterior restorations. A low debonding rate was documented over the three-year evaluation period.

What is dual cure resin cement?

Dual-Cure Resin Cements—Dual-cure resin cements are capable of being cured by means of both chemicals and light. Self-cure initiators that can cure the cement are present. In addition, a curing light can be used to activate the photo-initiators that are present in the cement.

Does zirconia need silane?

Unlike silica-based ceramics, high-strength ceramics such as zirconia cannot be sufficiently etched with common hydrofluoric-acid solutions. The typical silane coupling agent application is also useless, because there is no silica that would allow chemical adhesion of the silane.

Is multilink a resin cement?

Multilink Automix is a self-cure with optional light cure adhesive resin cement with a self-curing and self-etching primer. The use of a Monobond Plus, a universal restorative primer is recommended to achieve a stronger bond to all types of restorative materials.
