This article presents a 6-month case report and an in vitro evaluation of the performance of the new self-etching glass-ceramic monobond etch and prime (MEP) when applied in a lithium disilicate (LD). The MEP contains in the same bottle, along with acid conditioner and silanes. This simplifies the bonding procedures by reducing not only the number of steps, but also the working time. A 42-year-old female patient sought for esthetic treatment, and the main complaint was the darkened appearance of the upper lateral incisor. The esthetic treatment includes dental bleaching and gingivectomy, all-ceramic zirconia crowns, and all-ceramic crown and laminate veneer LD. After 6 months of esthetic treatment, marginal staining, gap, or chip fracturing damaging margins after sharp explorer in the margins was not observed. Furthermore, the inferior etching pattern of MEP was compared with traditional hydrofluoric acid (HF) conditioning. The microshear bond strength to the intaglio surface of LD was statistically similar when HF was compared with MEP. This new self-etching glass-ceramic showed good in vitro and 6 months clinical results in this case report. Future long-term clinical studies with more clinical case need to be done to confirm the performance of the use of this new conditioner.

Clinical significance

The use of a new self-etching glassceramic showed a good in vitro and 6 months clinical results. This new product can be an easy, simple, and alternative approach for esthetics bonding procedure.
