CONTEMPORARY CERAMIC MATERIALS IN DIGITAL AGE; FROM INDICATION TO CEMENTATION

In modern dentistry, the use of metal-ceramic restorations has gradually decreased due to aesthetic concerns. All-ceramic crowns and bridges restorations in anterior and posterior region are satisfactory in terms of aesthetic and function. Full ceramic restorations are preferred with natural tooth-like physical characteristics and aesthetic appearance. With the increased interest in biocompatible and aesthetically restorations, more cases can be treated. These features and the desire to use all ceramic materials have prompted researchers to continually improve the mechanical properties of dental ceramic materials. In this conference, information will be given about indications, clinical applications and selection criteria of the all ceramic systems used today
