-there is no ideal dental luting agent for all fixed pros.

-some properties of an ideal luting agent:

  • low viscosity and film thickness

  • long working time with rapid set

  • good resistance to water or acid attack

  • high compressive and tensile strength

  • adhesion to tooth structure and restorative material

  • cariostatic properties (fluoride release)

  • biologic compatibility

  • esthetics
