32 I I industry report _ CLEARFIL ESTHETIC CEMENT the silane primer was dried with a mild, oil-free airflow. Fig. 42_The teeth were polished with pumice before insertion of the bridge. A rubber dam with a largeopeningthatisolatedthepreparedandneigh- bouring teeth was used. Fig. 43_Applicationoftheself-etchingCLEARFIL ED PRIMER II to the preparation surfaces of the teeth. The primer was dried with compressed air until the surfaces were shiny. Fig. 44_Immediately after treating the restora- tionandtoothsurfaces,thebridgewasinsertedwith CLEARFIL ESTHETIC CEMENT. Fig. 45_After initial curing of the cement for a fewseconds,thecementwasremovedwithaprobe. Fig. 46_A bridge needle and floss were used to remove the excess cement underneath the pontic.

Fig. 54_After the CAD/CAM procedure, the zirconia bridge was heat-treated to full density, followed by a minor occlusal cut-back and veneer- ing with zirconia liner, deep dentine, stains and glaze. Fig. 55_Owing to its microstructure, zirconia is very dense and inert. Therefore, it cannot be HF etched or blasted with aluminium oxide particles. The inner surfaces of the abutment crowns were cleaned with K-etchant gel (40 % phosphoric acid; Kuraray Medical Inc.).
