Dependable assistance for fast, easy procedures


Cerinate® Prime is a one bottle, no-mix organosilane, ceramic primer. Research has shown it to increase and enhance the bond between composite resin and porcelain. It can be used in enhancing the bond of LUMINEERS® with Ultra-Bond® Plus, as well as all composite resin luting cements with porcelain veneers. It also plays an important role in porcelain repair after the porcelain surface has been microabraded or etched with a porcelain etching agent like Porcelock® Porcelain Etchant. As a ceramic primer, Cerinate® Prime allows the clinician to create a high strength chemical bond between porcelain and composite that is microleakage free.

Porcelain Conditioner is a citric acid pretreatment to activate and hydrolyze Cerinate® Prime ceramic primer. The use of Porcelain Conditioner as a pretreatment combined with the use of a silane ceramic primer, Cerinate® Prime, improves the durability of the porcelain-composite resin bond both in the bonding of all-ceramic restorations and for porcelain repair.

FAQs

What is the purpose of Porcelain Conditioner?

Porcelain Conditioner is a citric acid used as a pre-treatment to activate and hydrolyze the Cerinate® Prime. It also removes dust and cleans pre-etched LUMINEERS® to prepare them for bonding. It is not a porcelain etchant, which is a common misconception.

What is the purpose of Cerinate® Prime?

Cerinate® Prime is an organosilane ceramic primer, which creates the chemical bond between the LUMINEERS® and the Ultra-Bond.

Can either of these steps be eliminated?

No! Both the Porcelain Conditioner and Cerinate® Prime are essential steps in the LUMINEERS® placement procedure. Eliminating either of the steps would result in bond failure.
