During intraoral try-in, the interior surface of a restoration can be contaminated, causing problems with adhesive cementation. To avoid contamination, IVOCLAR VIVADENT's Ivoclean is a universal cleaning paste that can be used on restorations fabricated from glass ceramics, zirconia, alumina, precious and non-precious alloys and composites. The paste is applied to the bonding surface for 20 seconds and then rinsed away. The surface is dried with air before seating.
