Special Issue "Advances in Metal-Based and Ceramic-Based Dental Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 May 2023) | Viewed by 2597
Recently, the development and progressive of dental CAD/CAM technology and adhesive technology has enabled widespread use of novel dental materials. Subtractive manufacturing and additive manufacturing are the main categories of CAD/CAM systems using metal, ceramic, and composite materials to fabricate dental prostheses, orthodontic appliance and surgical guide, etc. Subtractive manufacturing processes like milling could reduce flaws and pores which may be caused by the casting process under high industrial standards. Additive manufacturing processes like selective laser melting (SLM) could produce the metal substrate by fusing metal powder in layers without much porosity. There is still not enough evidence to research new materials and processing procedures using the novel technology. Traditional casting techniques are still the dominant methods in dental metal processing.
Thus, we are pleased to invite you to submit a manuscript including original research articles and reviews for this Special Issue concerning any kinds of advances in metal-based and ceramic-based dental 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.
