Advanced ceramic materials such as zirconia have great potential as substitutes for traditional materials in many biomedical applications. Since the end of the 1990s, the form of partially stabilized zirconia has been promoted as suitable for dental use due to its excellent strength and superior fracture resistance as result of an inherent transformation toughening mechanism. In addition, zirconia bioceramic presents enhanced biocompatibility, low radioactivity, and interesting optical… CONTINUE READING
