Brief Summary:
This study evaluates retrospectively the survival rate of all-ceramic restorations, cemented using AWB technique (test) compared to those cemented with conventional technique (control)

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Survival, Prosthesis Device: dental restorations

Detailed Description:
A retrospective study on ceramic restorations, placed in the period 2003-2014, will be performed to assess the survival rate of all-ceramic restorations cemented adhesively. The effectiveness of cementation largely depend on the method used. The Air-Water-blasting performed prior to conventional acid-etch of dental tissues offers an increase in bond strength compared to the conventional etching technique.
