Dental materials are materials used in dentistry for various purposes including restoration of teeth, orthodontic appliances, and prosthodontic devices. Here is a brief description of some commonly used dental materials:
These are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of the teeth to improve their appearance. Porcelain veneers are strong and durable, and can be closely matched to the color of natural teeth.
This is a tooth-colored material used to restore decayed, chipped, or broken teeth. It is made up of a mixture of fine glass particles and resin, and is applied directly to the tooth in layers. Composite resin is durable and can be closely matched to the color of the surrounding teeth.
This is a type of dental material made of high-strength ceramic materials. Dental ceramics are used in a variety of dental applications, including inlays, onlays, crowns, and bridges. They are strong, durable, and biocompatible, and can be closely matched to the color of natural teeth.
graphene offers a promising alternative for use in dental restorations. With its high strength, biocompatibility, low electrical conductivity, and antibacterial properties, it has the potential to improve the strength and durability of dental restorations while also providing better patient comfort and safety. As research into the use of graphene in dentistry continues, it is possible that we will see a growing number of dental products based on this technology, helping to improve the oral health and well-being of patients around the world.
The zirconia gives you superior looks that precisely replicate your natural teeth. For the anterior/front teeth, it is more fitting. Your dentist does not choose high transparent zirconia if you require extensive orthodontic surgery to correct your teeth’ orientation.
