Wear evaluation of the human enamel opposing different Y-TZP dental ceramics and other porcelains.
Quote: "Dental professionals should be aware of the wear effect of dental restorations on the opposing teeth or restorations. The amount of enamel wear was highest in the feldspathic porcelains whereas zirconia ceramics caused less wear on the opposing teeth." Interesting Abstract for you to further evaluate for yourself...cheers!
Hi all I just had a client return from taking a course, He related to me that Zirconia should not be...See more used. He is working on getting me the literature. He said Zirconia should never be used as an implant abutment or even as a substructure. I am interested if any one has any good info on this. The only thing he mentioned was the rough nature of Zirconia if the glaze gets removed. Thanks in advance — tagged Zirconia
