We know that when we perform direct bonding procedures, our adhesives and restorative materials can cause proteolytic responses in the dentin structure, which may ultimately lead to failure at the interface. However, we tend to overlook the possibility of similar outcomes with our resin cements. As we create the same hybridization of the dentin, there is a potential for failure due to bacterial contamination, insufficient infiltration, and the acidity of our resin cement.
