What are the prospects for solid ceramic in dentistry?
All materials have some merit. The deciding factor is the dental indication, i.e., the situation in the patient’s mouth. In terms of materials, solid zirconia closes a gap. Of course, silicate ceramic also offers excellent esthetics and is still used.
Dentists and dental technicians confirm that full-contour zirconia has a promising future. Many believe that it is a cost-effective and stable alternative to established types of restorations such as metal-ceramic compounds or full-contour NPM restorations.
