Ceramic Vs Zirconia Vs Alumina

With the application of Ceramics /Porcelain, Esthetic Dentistry reached new dimensions. Ceramic/Porcelain had options of different color, adaptability, longevity and biologically stable and inert, but lacked strength compared with Metal counterparts, So they began reinforcing ceramics with metal skeleton thus having the benefits of both and they are Porcelain Fused Metal (PFM).

The PFM are 10% less esthetic on par with All or Full Ceramic crowns and to answer those issues was the infusion of ZIRCONIA and ALUMINA. Zirconia and Alumina posses the properties of metal in strength and durability but has options of colors mimicking natural tooth and fulfills all the requirements of a perfect nature match. They are either hand milled or computer milled(CAD).
