SIMPLICITY AND EASE OF USE

  • No priming or bonding agent is needed, saving time and steps 
  • Good flowability and consistency with low expansion and no shrinkage
  • Works well with zirconia—simple protocol with good retentive strength 
  • Good retentive strength, comparable to self-adhesive resin cements 
  • Same easy cleanup as other Calibra® cements 

SELF-REPAIRING HYDROXYAPATITE (HA) LAYER

Calibra® Bio Bioceramic Luting Cement minimizes microleakage and protects the restoration’s long-term marginal integrity. Calcium and hydroxyl ions interact with phosphate ions in saliva, forming HA along the preparation’s margin. If any future damage occurs, saliva in the oral environment interacts with cement at the margins to continuously repair the HA layer and enhance overall marginal integrity.
