Purpose: The influence of the curing mode (dual vs light) and of the photopolymerization through ceramic or resin composite on the degree of remaining carbon bonds was investigated via infrared spectroscopic analysis for 1 resin cement (Calibra, Caulk/Dentsply). Materials and Methods: The 0.5-mm cement layer was photopolymerized for 40 s through the 2-mm-thick ceramic Empress 2 (Ivoclar) and Vitadur Alpha (Vident) and the laboratory-processed resin composite Sinfony (3M/ESPE). Results: The dual-cured system polymerized better than the light mode. Photopolymerization of the resin cement through the translucent materials reduced its curing efficiency in both curing modes. The resin composite induced a more negative effect than the 2 ceramics tested. Conclusion:The curing mode and photopolymerization of dual-cured resin cements through esthetic restorative materials affects the degree of remaining double carbon bonds.
