Influence of curing modes on the degree of conversion and mechanical parameters of dual-cured luting agents
ConclusionsProvided adequate light curing is applied to a dual-cured luting agent, delaying the light curing or using a tack cure first to facilitate seating of a restoration may not have a significant impact on the luting agent’s final degree of conversion. However, using chemical cure only may result in inadequate cure of the luting agent and is recommended only for highly opaque restorations. (Source: Journal of Prosthodontic Research)
