Prosthodontic Rehabilitation with Fixed Monolithic Translucent Zirconia Restorations: A Case History Report
Rabel, Kerstin / Lamott, Ulrich / Polydorou, Olga / Flügge, Tabea / Spies, Benedikt C.
Recent attempts in the development of novel zirconia ceramics aim at improving its optical characteristics by increasing the yttria content to up to 5 mol% so that these ceramics can be used for the fabrication of stable and esthetic monolithic restorations. However, clinical evidence on the outcomes of such restorations is sparse. In this case report, monolithic inlays, partial crowns, tooth- and implant-supported single crowns, and fixed dental prostheses were fabricated out of a zirconia ceramic doped with 5 mol% yttria. The restorations in the present case history report showed a satisfying esthetic outcome and are in situ as inserted 18 months after insertion.
