Restorative Materials for Esthetic Restorations

Irena Sailer

An esthetic implant restoration is the result of multiple factors, including the optical properties of the restorative materials in collaboration with light, the presence of adequate surrounding soft tissues, and the arrangement of the teeth.

This lecture presents the current restorative material options, from metal-ceramic restorations—the gold standard, with well-documented complications and esthetic limitations—to all-ceramic materials, which comprise the stronger oxide ceramics and more esthetic glass ceramics.

Concise summaries of the current literature on esthetic restorative materials are included as an aid to clinical decisions. A portion of the lecture is devoted to the newer monolithic CAD/CAM materials, especially resin nanoceramics and hybrid ceramics, along with their limitations and esthetic indications.

At the end of this Congress Lecture you should be able to…

  • define an esthetic dental implant restoration
  • recognize the restorative options available for dental implant restorations
  • discuss the structural advantages and limitations of different restorative materials
  • explain the esthetic advantages and limitations of different restorative materials
