    I'm back to working part time in the office I used to work at full time 12
    years ago.
    I was trying to figure out what I could use as crown buildup material and to
    block out undercuts in crown preps. They have Fuji 2 there in capsules.
    Not only do you triturate the stuff in an amalgamator but you also have to
    light cure it; sounds strange to me but anyway, is this stuff good for
    buildups; there weren't any inserts about it in the package?

    The other thing there was ketac. I heard one of the doctors would put the
    silver powder from an amalgam capsule in with the ketac to make buildup
    material; I was wondering if this was an accepted practice so I haven't done
    it myself until I could find more out about it. I wish they'd just order
    some miracle mix!

    Oh, and I've never done a veneer in my life but I've had to recement 2 of
    them since there; not too difficult though they're so darn tiny and fragile
    looking I'm afraid it'll go flying out of my fingers. But thing is, when I
    looked at them, I couldn't tell if there was cement still inside of it or if
    it was the veneer porcelain; any tips would be appreciated, and I don't mean
    from a moyel please, Joel. Seems my recementations went in ok.

    Have moved on to Fuji 9.
    Works great, I only use the light cure covering if using as a restoration.

    Give Fuji 9 a try.
    Am using Calibra, works great, light cure or dual cure, your choice.

    IMO, Fuji 2 is only a liner, no more. It is not strong enough to be used
    as core material. As Krzysztof and W_B have said, Fuji 9 is promising as
    a build up material, and PhotoCore is the preferred material of
    Bondo-Da-Da Ray Bertolotti (FWIW). Also FWIW, Jeff Brucia (the most
    down-to-earth of the Modern Materials Gurus that I have seen to date)
    mentioned that all materials are tested against 3M-ESPE's Z-100
    material. This is because it is the hardest composite that has been made
    to date. In JB's opinion, it is TOO hard for most applications. IMO,
    this makes it a good material for buildups and blocking out areas like
    you want to do. In spite of the 'what's a core?' response of DrS, _I_
    would argue that the way he cements in a fiber post and then cements a
    CEREC onlay over it using Z-100 to become cement and filler material
    whereever it is needed, means that the Z-100 _becomes_ a core and
    undercut material. His success means that this material is reliable.

    I have used Z-100, and its posterior compo cousin P-60, as core
    materials with (so far) good success. Of course, you can't slop it on
    under an aluminum band all at once like you can a dual or auto cure
    material, but you can put allot on at one time and ramp cure it.
    There must be some way to handle them using those sticky sticks (like
    Grabbits) so you can solidly scrape the interior of the veneer. I would
    contact (shudder....) Den Mat. This is because they have the longest
    track record for porcelain veneers in the industry. They make a good kit
    for anterior cementation
    Why did they fall off in the first place? Are they using silane on the
    porcelain?

    Your man for veneers is Alex Vasserman. Hope he chimes in.

    Cheers

    There are two types of "sticks" available for holding small porcelain
    restorations prior to cementation. One has soft wax on the end, the other
    was a ball of sticky resin on the end. You try both and choose the one that
    works best in your hands. They are much cheaper than dropping a restoration
    on the floor. You clean the inner surface with an Adabrader or similar sand
    blasting device.
