It is a fixed prosthesis material that has been preferred in dentistry for many years. It can be applied to the back teeth where there is no aesthetic concern in the mouth. Due to the metal in its infrastructure, an ideal aesthetic result may not always be achieved in the treatment of anterior teeth. In such cases, zirconium-based porcelains or full ceramic porcelains are preferred.
Zirconium infrastructured porcelain:
It has superior physical properties compared to metal-based porcelains. Light transmittance and gingival compatibility are among the advantages of this material in terms of aesthetics and biocompatibility. It is more costly than metal-based porcelain. It can be applied in the anterior or posterior region in the mouth.
Thanks to the developing technology, the full ceramic porcelain prosthesis provides ideal results in the anterior tooth area. It is the material where aesthetic values are at the highest point and the closest results to natural teeth are obtained.
Laminae are usually made of full ceramic porcelains. Since the light transmittance is similar to the tooth, an ideal natural appearance is obtained.
