All-ceramic silica/glass-based crowns – clinical protocols


The use of all-ceramic crowns offers the potential for improved aesthetic results compared to conventional ceramo-metal crowns. Silica/glass-based all-ceramic crowns are more translucent than alumina- or zirconia-based crowns and therefore have better optical properties. However, they are mechanically weaker and need to be used in conjunction with resin… (More)
