Description

With the myriad options available to the clinician, selecting the appropriate ceramic material for a restoration can be a daunting task. This article seeks to simplify the selection protocol by classifying the materials as either glass ceramics or oxide ceramics. The physical and optical properties of these materials will also be discussed. Additionally, when using certain materials, there are several variables that will affect the final shade of the restoration. These factors will be discussed and clinical examples will illustrate how to best optimize prosthetic results.

Objectives

Objectives
Recognize how to select the appropriate ceramic restoration based on material properties. Understand the differences between glass and oxide ceramics. Gain familiarity with the variables that affect the final shade of the ceramic restoration, including material translucency and opacity.
