Question Asked on 6/20/2018

Why are the margins of my all ceramic restorations turning dark or black sometime after cementation?

You are probably using an iron-based chemical astringent for soft tissue management. Switch to an aluminum-based astringent and make sure there is no contamination of the site with blood prior to cementation.
