Why is feldspathic porcelain no longer the restorative material of choice for many clinicians? Although esthetic, porcelain is brittle with a low fracture toughness and a high proneness to failure in the presence of flaws.
To overcome this problem, new materials with greater strength were pursued. As a result, now you can take your restorative practice to the next level with a new generation of CAD/CAM composites offering high flexural strength, better marginal integrity, fast milling, and tooth-resembling esthetics. This new category of materials (referred to as CAD/CAM composites and/or hybrid ceramics) represents the synergy of ceramics and composites with their respective beneficial mechanical properties.
This article explores the many advantages of this new generation of CAD/CAM composites, along with offering a case presentation.
