Restorative dentistry:  Ceramics in dentistry: which material is appropriate for the anterior or posterior dentition? Part 2: recent clinical research

Feedback:  0 comments, 0 ratings

      

Abstract: The large choice of ceramic materials for an indirect restoration has given clinicians a dilemma when choosing a suitable ceramic material for restorations in anterior or posterior teeth. Part 1 compared the physical properties and aesthetics of lithium disilicate and zirconia materials. This article explores recent clinical research on these materials.

Clinical relevance: Awareness of which ceramic material performs optimally on anterior and posterior teeth is clinically important.
