Title: New Materials for CAD/CAM-manufactured restorations


CAD/CAM – procedures have been significantly improved since the first launch of CEREC 1 in 1987. This lead to the introduction of new ceramic materials in 1999 with the possibility to use Zirconia as a restorative material even for long-span bridges. 
In that consequence not only Zirconia was improved over the time according to the handling and translucency – new glass-containing ceramics were developed as well.
For a few years new high strength composites entered the market with some promises to match better the properties especially of dentin.  It is supposed that they improve especially the restorations behavior on implants as those lack of resilience which is nowadays observed more critically.
But even “old” materials as Titanium, CoCr-alloys and high-precious alloys were offered for the use in CAD/CAM-procedures.
The lectures gives an overview of the state of the complexity and diversity of the material’s portfolio to help for the decision making for the dentist and technician to get the right material for the individual desires of each patient.
