Dental ceramics are the best choice a patient can make for dental work, whether it's a small restoration, a dental bridge or extended removable denture. The qualities of ceramics are given by the special aesthetics, the wide range of colors and the translucency close to that of natural teeth. Dental ceramics is a hard and resistant material that offers a very rich range of shades, with excellent aesthetic properties, being able to imitate the smallest details on the surface of the teeth.
The material is not sensitive to eating foods that are too hot or too cold, but it is advisable not to eat extremely hard foods and not to overload the ceramic works. Dental ceramics can be used both alone in the case of all-ceramic works, and in combination with various metallic or zirconium alloys that will play the role of a supporting skeleton.

Metal-ceramic dental work
The metal-ceramic crown and the metal-ceramic bridge are composed of a supporting metal skeleton that ensures the strength of the entire prosthetic work. An important advantage of metal-ceramic works is the strong connection between the metal skeleton and the ceramic. The quality, but also the price of a work largely depends on the metal alloys used to make the skeleton.

Ceramic works on the zirconium skeleton by CAD/CAM technology
Zirconium is a special type of white ceramic, which has excellent strength and durability, being considered the most durable material used in dentistry to date. Zirconium can be used with great success to make the supporting skeleton of ceramic works, having a special aesthetic due to the fact that it does not contain any kind of metal. Due to the special aesthetics and resistance, dental work can be done exclusively from zirconium, with the recommendation that they be placed in less visible areas. The costs of ceramic works on the zirconium skeleton can be higher, this fact being due both to the material itself and to the equipment necessary for its processing: the works are executed with computerized systems, having perfect precision.

Entirely ceramic works
They are dental works made entirely of ceramic, without a metal or zirconium framework, and are usually used when the aesthetic demands are very high, such as in the case of incisors. The absence of a supporting skeleton makes them less resistant, which is why they are not recommended for molars, where mastication occurs. It is not recommended to make all-ceramic bridges that exceed 2 or 3 elements.
