Abstract

The development of dental crowns is highly concerned with optimum mechanical properties, superior esthetic appearance and biocompatibility. In order to meet these requirements, structural ceramics have been improved and have become increasingly more popular in dentistry. Among the dental ceramics, zirconia is the dental restorative material most commonly used in dental restoration. This material has unique characteristics, such as high fracture toughness, biocompatibility, and color approximating the natural tooth color. However, zirconia is too opaque, which reduces the esthetic appearance of the restoration. This paper reviews zirconia as a dental material with the potential for further use in ceramic dentistry.
