Zirconia crowns - the new standard for single-visit dentistry?
Wiedhahn, Klaus / Fritzsche, Günter / Wiedhahn, Claudine / Schenk, Olaf
Zirconia crowns combine the advantages of metal restorations, such as minimally invasive tooth preparation and ease of cementation, with those of full ceramic crowns, such as low thermal conductivity and tooth color. With the introduction of a high-speed sintering procedure, it is possible to produce and cement zirconia crowns and small monolithic bridges in a Cerec Single Visit procedure. This new procedure is compared to established chairside methods.
