In vitro element release and biological aspects of base-metal alloys for metal-ceramic applications -

Abstract Objective The aims of this study were to investigate the release of element from, and the biological response in vitro to, cobalt–chromium alloys and other base–metal alloys used for the fabrication of metal-ceramic restorations. Material and methods: Eighteen different alloys were investigated. Nine cobalt–chromium alloys, three nickel–chromium alloys, two cobalt–chromium–iron alloys, one palladium–silver alloy, […]

Fracture mode during cyclic loading of implant-supported single-tooth restorations -

The study compared the mode of fracture and number of cyclic loads until veneering fracture when ceramic and metal ceramic restorations with different veneering ceramics were supported by implants.
