    Efficiently mill crowns and bridges that provide strength and aesthetics

    • Dental material selection is one of the most crucial factors in indirect restorative dentistry and it needs to be done before anything else. To tailor the restoration individually to the indication and the patient´s needs, multiple clinical and material associated parameters have to be considered.

      Depending on the clinical case, aesthetics and strength should be taken into account. The main options include silicate ceramics and oxide ceramics. In any case, the ultimate ambition should always be to save as much natural tooth structure as possible.
