New Materials for Dental Prostheses

Publié le 31 Jan, 2020

Dentistry is also profiting from technological advances and the digital revolution. Dental prostheses thus offer better quality.

All types of dental prostheses are profiting from this new 3.0 era: removable prostheses, prostheses attached to teeth, and prostheses on dental implants.

New materials are thus being used to create dental prostheses. This use will make it possible to improve comfort, solidity, biocompatibility, and aesthetics.

All these aspects give great benefits for patients.


What are the new, innovative materials?


  • • Ceramic: today this is the most used material for dental prostheses. Ceramic has a durable, aesthetic quality because it closely resembles natural teeth, partly from its colour and its translucid appearance.


  • • Lithium disilicate: used for tooth reconstruction;inlays, onlays, crowns and veneers. In effect, this material has a high fracture resistance and excellent aesthetic results.


  • • Zirconia: a material which enables recreating more natural teeth. It is advantageous because it has excellent biocompatibility and good resistance.


  • • PEKK: (PolyEtherKetoneKetone) this is a high-performance thermoplastic in development which is very promising because it is very light and biocompatible.
