Durability of Anterior Composite Restorations Compared to Ceramics?

Direct resin composite restorations are preferred in anterior teeth as well as posterior teeth with the developing materials and methods in adhesive dentistry concept. These restorations mimic the natural dental tissues very well as they have advantage of being minimally invasive in a single appointment. In many clinical cases conservatively also no preparations is needed. Layering of natural dental tissues and creating macro-micro surface textures are some of the aesthetic details for resin composite restorations. Crown fracture restorations, diastema closure restorations and full veneer restorations are the indications for direct composite resins. Discolorations and especially structural stability are the topics for comparison for direct resin restorations and their main rival, indirect ceramic restorations. There are many clinical and laboratory researches about this comparison and recent advancements in these materials keeps the topic up-to-date. As well as correct indication, good isolation, proper technique, detailed polishing procedures and frequent recalls, the materal type also directly effects the success of the restoration. In this lecture, the clinical durability of the resin composites and indirect ceramics will be discussed comparatively and scientifically. Moreover, ‘which material type is better for which case in daily clinic’ topic will be discussed and clearified.
