In recent years, the development of novel technologies and innovative restorative materials have opened the way to digital dentistry, widening treatment options and operative approaches in prosthetic and restorative dentistry.
The introduction of intraoral scanners and advanced fabrication processes like CAD-CAM technologies and 3D printing has allowed the implementation of innovative dental ceramics and metal-free materials, offering the chance to substitute conventional metal frameworks and improving the esthetic outcome of restorations. In addition, the outstanding mechanical properties of these new-generation materials have allowed reducing the biological sacrifice of dental tissues, reinterpreting preparation geometries and operative procedures in a more conservative way.
Technopolymers, hybrid composites, polycrystalline and high-strength ceramics offer undeniable advantages such as excellent mechanical resistance, astounding esthetic and optical properties, reliable precision and accuracy, reducing, at the same time, chairside and production time.
Clinicians can profit from these improvements in the digital workflow, which make operative procedures easier, standardized, and repeatable and improve, in turn, patients’ compliance and comfort.
