These novel zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate glass-ceramics have good mechanical properties associated with an excellent esthetic quality, thus being a valid alterative to lithium disilicate materials for prosthetic rehabilitations with high aesthetic demand. The main advantage of these materials is their timesaving ability for the production of dental restorations, since they are faster to be milled in CAD-CAM machines than lithium disilicate glass-ceramics 53 and are already offered in their fully crystallized state CELTRA Duo, Dentisply-Sirona, Bensheim, Germany no furnace need or need a very short crystallization cycle Suprinity, Bad Sachingen, Germany.

A particular advantage of the lithium silicate ceramic over the lithium disilicate version is the superior polishability due to the smaller crystal sizes in the microstructure. In the last decades, the use of CAD-CAM systems in dentistry has increased exponentially, especially because of the general trends towards high productivity and aesthetics. However, problems commonly related to resin composite systems still need to be overcome, such as the reduced mechanical properties and poor wear resistance.

A recent publication 62 reported that Enamic showed elastic modulus values similar to that reported by the manufacturer around 30 GPa , however, the fracture toughness values measured in this investigation 0. The fracture toughness value obtained for PICN was similar to that of the feldspathic ceramic evaluated.

Therefore, the authors rejected the hypothesis that the presence of a polymer network would create toughening mechanisms in the microstructure of the material. This raised the question if the polymer is susceptible to water permeation and degradation. PICNs have positive properties related to both the ceramic and composites, with an interesting balance between elasticity and strength, being indicated for single crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers. As expected for a composite material, the properties are intermediate between those of ceramics and particle-filled resins.

The elastic modulus of these materials is in the range of 30 GPa, which is half of that reported for conventional veneering ceramics but closer to what is usually reported for dentin 15—20 GPa. The Vickers hardness of human enamel 3. With respect to optical properties, the shrinkage of the curing resin results in interfacial stresses occurring between the ceramic framework and the polymer resulting in debonding and leading to a higher opacity because of the gaps developed at the interface.

The selection of resin, the application of high pressure during the curing phase, and the silanization process enhanced bonding and helped overcoming the aesthetic problems by increasing the translucency of the material. Clinical simulations show promising lifetime results for PICN.

A chewing simulation of five years demonstrated that none of the Enamic crowns failed, while six IPS e. Due to the inferior optical properties, PICNs are more suitable in the molar than in the anterior region. CAD-CAM refers to a computer system that is used to both design and manufacture a dental restoration. CAD technology uses a software to define the shape and dimensions of the restoration, while CAM technology takes the designed model to a computer numeric control CNC machine to manufacture the restoration, usually from a block made of a dental material subtractive manufacturing.

Currently, the production of metal-free restorations using polycrystalline ceramic infrastructures e. CAD-CAM systems have been used in Dentistry for almost 30 years, 79 and during this period different machines have been launched, as these systems are constantly evolving and producing restorations with much better adaptation. The first one is the machining of the prosthetic restoration from a block of the sintered material, while the second consists of machining a block in a partially sintered state with subsequent final sintering in a specific furnace.

Both techniques are used in dentistry and each of them have their advantages and disadvantages. Machining a block of sintered material provides the restoration with a greater precision of its contours and shape in addition to saving clinical time, since the restoration does not require an additional heat treatment. However, when machining a material with high strength like polycrystalline ceramics, both the wear of the machining unit tools and the machining time are very high.

Also, machining brittle materials such as dental ceramics can lead to the formation of microcracks and surface defects. Although the CAD-CAM systems described above are already well established in the dental market, they present a major drawback related to the great waste of material upon machining. Therefore, new technologies have been developed to overcome this problem. Some of them produce the restoration by means of adding layers instead of grinding pre-fabricated blocks additive manufacturing. In this technique, the laser beam sinters thin layers of a ceramic from a container filled with powder to create a single coping or framework, in which each layer represents a cross section of the CAD model.

Stereolithography is frequently used nowadays, and has already evolved enough to allow production of more complex ceramic pieces, whereas the previously mentioned techniques are in the early development stage for dental applications. Stereolithography is similar to 3D printing, however it makes use of a suspension containing ceramic particles mixed with a resin components acrylates or epoxy monomers. The great advantage associated with all additive techniques is that they provide minimal or no material waste. One still existing disadvantage of all additive methods to date is the rough surface quality and the poor fit or marginal precision.

Considering the mentioned additive methods, Direct 3D Printing is the technique that stands out, as the equipment is relatively more accessible and allows for the production of a dense green body ready for sintering. In , 91 using a modified inkjet printer, a zirconia crown was manufactured with sufficient mechanical properties to be used in the oral cavity. Robocasting uses extruded filaments instead of ejected droplets to produce the object.

Also, a trend towards the use of monolithic restorations has changed the way clinicians produce all-ceramic dental prostheses, since the more aesthetic multilayered restorations unfortunately are more prone to chipping or delamination.
