Purpose: This report presents clinical cases in which a self-activating dual-cure adhesive system was used in combination with proprietary self-curing resin cement for bonding a translucent glass-fiber post. The clinical luting procedure of a self-activating bonding/self-curing resin cement system in combination with a glass-fiber post based on fiber-reinforced technology is documented. Materials and Methods: The glass-fiber post was placed into a root canal preparation under clinical conditions and documented. A few restored teeth were extracted after 1 week and processed for SEM observations to determine the bonding mechanism to root dentin under clinical conditions. Results: The SEM observations clearly showed that the bonding mechanism between Excite Dual Cure and root dentin was based on hybrid layer, resin tag, and adhesive lateral branch formation. Conclusion: The luting procedure described is simple and easy, and can be proposed as a daily clinical technique.
