Is it REALLY necessary to cure surpass3 after applying it after interface if I KNOW the light will reach it and cure the surpass3 after seating the restoration? (Because not having to cure it first would save time, and more importantly would eliminate the possibility of incomplete seating of the restoration by an excess thickness of cured surpass3.)

I have never had a problem seating anything, even with two separate polymerized layers of Surpass. I think you'll find the same experience throughout the forum membership.

It is best if it is light-activated. Just be sure to thin it out.

Thanks John, for you quick reply!
And just to be sure I understand correctly, interface then surpass3 then cure and thats it, ready for anchor, right? No need to apply another layer of surpass and leave it uncured. Again, thanks.

That's correct. Be sure to watch the video. It includes everything we discussed!

I used to be afraid of too much surpass 3 preventing the seat and I have not seen it. Just thin quite a bit and make sure the surpass 3 does not run over on the interprximals and make it too wide--- YOU can usually force it down if that happens, but I prefer to be careful or use a scaler here prior to cementation.
