The Natural Restorations are not etched in the DSD Lab, we recommend etching them after the patient try in has been performed. The clinical manipulation in the try-in process may contaminate the restoration.
DSD Lab’s suggested protocol for etching consists of using Floridic acid for 20 seconds for e.maxCAD and 60 seconds for EmpressCAD. (we have to write our full recommended protocol)
We recommend Ivoclar cements for best results. Please follow Ivoclar’s recommended cementation technique for each of the materials that we provide: EmpressCAD, e.maxCAD, ZirCAD and PMMA. If you select another cement provider, please follow their instructions.
