Choosing luting cements can be challenging given the constant development of resin cements and ceramic materials for indirect restorations. This review article gathers the most commonly used luting cements in current dental practice, focusing particularly on these cements’ composition and properties, which have an impact on their clinical indication. The article includes adhesive and non-adhesive luting cements for both final and temporary fixation of indirect restorations. Resin cements are categorized according to their polymerization reaction and the mechanism of adhesion to the hard dental tissues, while glass ionomer cements are divided into water-based and resin-reinforced versions. Among the non-adhesive cements included in this article is the well-known zinc phosphate cement used for final cementation, as well as zinc oxide-based cements for temporary cementation.
