after i implemented TDE on my database i need to restore the encrypted database backup on different server.

- I took backup for the encrypted database and certificate with private key as i read on some blogs.

question: do i need also to take backup of the service master key and master key and restore them on the new instance or no need?
if no need then what is the need for backing up/restoring service master key and master key commands and in which case they are used?
