Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Digital workflow has prevailed in current dentistry for reliability and economic reasons. Meanwhile, a wide range of CAD/CAM materials became available, offering improved physical and mechanical properties, and enabling more conservative treatments.
Subsequently, the indication of these CAD/CAM materials for tooth-supported restorations has broadened and their rapid evolution has hampered attaining evidence of their clinical success.
This Special Issue will provide readers with updated findings regarding CAD/CAM blocks made with glass ceramics, resin-based materials, PICN materials, and oxide ceramics, especially monolithic and translucent zirconia, to perform tooth-supported restorations. Their mechanical and esthetic properties will be addressed to ensure that they meet the clinical requirements for crowns, bridges, and indirect partial restorations in anterior and posterior teeth.
For this purpose, contributed papers regarding the following topics are requested:
- Physical and mechanical properties of CAD/CAM materials.
- Esthetic properties of CAD/CAM materials.
- Surface treatments of CAD/CAM materials to enhance their bonding properties.
- Clinical performance of tooth-supported restorations fabricated with CAD/CAM materials.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
