The development and use of ceramic alloys have created the potential for variation in the color of dental porcelain. In order to define the nature of the alterations, it is necessary to examine quantitatively the color of dental porcelain baked onto ceramic alloys. The purpose of this study was to examine spectrometrically where color differences occur in the fabrication process. One shade of Vita porcelain was baked onto coupons of three ceramic alloys (high gold, palladium-silver, base metal… CONTINUE READING
