Dental ceramics – Classification and properties -

Different dental ceramics available today including a classification, mechanical properties and a description of processing techniques with emphasis on the zirconia materials.

Solubility and strength of zirconia-based dental materials after artificial aging -

The purpose of this study was to compare the flexure strength of zirconium dioxide materials designed for different sintering techniques before and after surface exposure to an acidic solution and to correlate the dissolution of the materials with strength data.
