For the past ten years, dentistry has been marked by stimulating developments and innovations. In the field of prosthetics, the numerous advances regarding restorative materials and new technologies have generated a plethora of instruments and products that today “overflow” dental laboratories and medical studios
Amongst this confusion, the clinician and the technician are often faced with difficult choices due to the multiple treatment modalities available on the market today.
In order to make the best use of these innovations, it is of fundamental importance to create a method and order within these new prosthetic solutions.
The new aesthetic materials, commonly called all-porcelain or metal-free ceramics, include a wide range of products that have completely different aesthetic, biomechanical, manufacturing and clinical characteristics.
This obliges us to have an adequate understanding in this regard, so that we can choose the most appropriate technique and restorative material for each clinical situation.
Knowledge and wisdom must interact in order to improve the therapies and well-being of our patients.
