What is the difference between Choice 2 and eCEMENT?

Answer Response by on 2/2/2017

Choice 2™ is a light-cured luting cement designed specifically for cementation of porcelain and composite veneers. Choice 2 exhibits superior color stability which is a critical factor in esthetic veneer cementation. A range of VITA®* shades as well as chromatic shades are available allowing for flexibility to achieve high esthetics. Corresponding try-in pastes (sold separately) are available for shade confirmation prior to final cementation. 

eCEMENT® is a resin cementation system designed to simplify the placement of lithium disilicate (e.g. IPS e.max®**) restorations. Lithium disilicate is a silica-based glass ceramic available in pressed and milled forms, with both high and medium opacities, and high and low translucencies. The eCEMENT system contains both light-cure, and dual-cure resin cement, ensuring that all of your lithium disilicate restorations will have exceptional retention and esthetics. 

The eCEMENT system may used for cementation of all restorations including veneers, inlays, onlays, crowns, three-unit bridges CAD/CAM blocks & pressable ingots made of lithium disilicate.  Choice 2 is indicated for the cementation of porcelain and composite veneers only.
