For all your definite cementation needs

Definitive Cements are used for permanent placement of indirect restorations. One of the key tasks is to provide reliable marginal seal. Sealing the space between indirect restoration and prepared tooth is one of the essential tasks of any dental cement. Thus, penetration of microorganisms and caries formation is delayed as long as possible.

Definitive Cements can be broken down into two groups: 

  • Classic or Conventional Cements (Paste-Paste or Powder-Liquid)
  • Resin Cements (Adhesive or Self-Adhesive)

The Calibra family of definitive cements was designed to make it easier than ever to achieve consistent, successful results in your indirect restorations.

Why choose Calibra Cements?

Easy Cleanup

Because 21% of crown failures are due to secondary caries, of which excess cement can be one of the contributing factors,³ thorough removal of excess is key to ensuring durable restorations. Most cements give you extremely limited time for cleanup, increasing the likelihood of excess being left on the tooth, especially interproximally.1 Calibra Cements offer easy, unhurried cleanup for convenience and the assurance of a long-lasting restoration.

Reliable Brand

Calibra is a trusted brand with over a decade of clinical performance.

Simplified Cement Selection

Determining which cement is best suited for a specific indication has been complicated and confusing, and can cause a restoration to fail if selected incorrectly. 

Use our Selection Tool to find the right cement and ensure the success of your restorations.

The complete solution for CEREC MTL Zirconia restorations

To achieve outstanding results in dental restorations, strength and beauty must go hand in hand. CEREC MTL Zirconia is the solution that provides you with strong, precise restorations that are highly esthetic and natural looking.

The complete solution for CEREC Zirconia+ restorations

Designed to perform better together, Calibra Universal Self-Adhesive Resin Cement is simple and easy to use with CEREC Zirconia+ restorations. There’s no need to prepare enamel or dentin with an etchant or bonding agent—simply apply Calibra Universal to the restoration and it’s ready to seat.

The complete solution for CEREC Tessera restorations

The answer to which cement is correct for a certain situation depends largely on the type of restoration and its wall thickness. Fundamentally all types of CEREC Tessera glass ceramic restoration can be cemented fully adhesively. 

  • Inlays, onlays and partial crowns have to be cemented fully adhesively, that is using Prime&Bond and Calibra Ceram.
  • Veneers have to be cemented fully adhesively, that is using Prime&Bond and Calibra Veneer.
  • Anterior and posterior crowns with a wall thickness of approximately 1.5 millimeters or more may also be cemented with a glass ionomer technology based cement, such as Calibra Bio or Calibra Universal.

Inlays, onlays and partial crown restorations with a wall-thickness <1.5mm

Anterior and posterior crown restorations with a wall thickness >1.5mm

The complete solution for Celtra Duo (ZLS) restorations

Developed to make a difference at each step in the restorative process, each component of the Celtra Duo system was designed to perform ideally when used together. When used as a system, the result is a remarkably strong and long-lasting bond you can rely on.
