Course Description

The lecture will present a concept for the choice of type of reconstruction and material for high esthetic outcomes. Recently, an increasing use of ceramic materials for the fabrication of dental reconstructions can be observed. Advantages of all-ceramic materials over the traditional metal-ceramics include their tooth-resembling color and the enamel-like translucency. The main limitation of ceramics is their brittleness leading to a risk for fracture of the reconstruction during clinical service. In order to reduce this risk, ceramics with increased stability were developed. Especially the high-strength ceramic zirconia seems to have a lot of potential to be applied as an alternative to metal. Several clinical studies showed promising results of zirconia-based tooth and implant reconstructions. For the processing of zirconia numerous computer-aided manufacturing procedures are available today. Due to the high number of restorative possibilities, the choice of the “ideal” material is getting more and more complex.
