Abstract

Chipping of the ceramic veneer is reported as a common event when using copings made with zirconium-oxide based for fixed dental prostheses (FDPs). Inadequate support of the veneering ceramic by the zirconia substructure IS considered one of the possible causes of this complication. In this article, a new technical method for prevention of ceramic chipping with zirconia frameworks, the Aesthetic Functional Area Protection (AFAP), IS presented.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
