Porcelain laminate veneers (PLVs) have been used for over two decades to treat esthetic and/or functional problems, particularly in the anterior sector. A range of dental ceramic materials are presently available on the market for these treatments, though with very different characteristics in terms of the composition, optic properties and manufacturing(More)
PURPOSE Clinical studies have revealed a high rate of fracture for porcelain-veneered zirconia-based restorations that varies between 6% and 15% over a 3- to 5-year period. These are high values compared to the 4% fracture rate shown by conventional metal-ceramic restorations over 10 years. To date, little in vitro research has been carried out on the(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the clinical efficacy and long-term survival rate of three-unit fixed partial dentures (FPDs) made from lithium disilicate-based core ceramic. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-one three-unit FPDs were placed in 19 patients to replace single lost teeth in the esthetic area, following a study protocol(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate the clinical results of 323 porcelain laminate veneers over a period of 3 to 11 years. MATERIAL AND METHOD This study included 70 patients, aged between 18 and 74 years. Of the 323 total veneers, 124 were of a simple design and 199 were of a functional design. The condition of the soft tissues and(More)
UNLABELLED To evaluate bond strengths of different resin cements to two aluminum oxide-based ceramics. METHODS One hundred ten ceramic cylinders were produced and given four different surface treatments. Resin cement cylinders were then bonded to the ceramic cylinders using different resin cements and the bond strength was determined by shear testing to(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate bond strengths of zirconium-oxide (zirconia) ceramic and a selection of different composite resin cements. STUDY DESIGN 130 Lava TM cylinders were fabricated. The cylinders were sandblasted with 80 µm aluminium oxide or silica coated with CoJet Sand. Silane, and bonding agent and/or Clearfil Ceramic Primer(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims to determine whether bruxism and the use of occlusal splints affect the survival of porcelain laminate veneers in patients treated with this technique. MATERIAL AND METHODS Restorations were made in 70 patients, including 30 patients with some type of parafunctional habit. A total of 323 veneers were placed, 170 in patients with(More)
OBJECTIVES To observe porcelain veneer behavior of zirconia and metal-ceramic full coverage crowns when subjected to compression testing, comparing zirconia cores to metal cores. STUDY DESIGN The porcelain fracture surfaces of 120 full coverage crowns (60 with a metal core and 60 with a zirconia core) subjected to static load (compression) testing were(More)
With the appearance of all-ceramic systems, providing a choice of framework porcelains and allowing the same material to be used for the veneer, it is now possible to select the ideal structure in terms of both function and aesthetics. Silicate ceramics allow porcelain laminate veneers and crowns to be used in the anterior region, providing excellent(More)
