For many years, halogen light-curing units (LCUs) were preferred as the most practical method for polymerizing light-cured resin. However, as halogen LCUs exhibit several shortcomings, as an alternative, a light-emitting diode (LED) LCU was introduced to polymerize light-cured resin.
Resin cements are necessary to bond porcelain and glass-ceramic restorations to ensure high strength, (4) better esthetics and longer clinical survival.5 In some situations, light-cured resin cements have been indicated, because of their color stability and longer working time.
