Aesthetic Functional Area Protection (AFAP): a new concept for prevention of ceramic chipping with zirconia frameworks
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.
