Description:

Does the translucency of your zirconia restoration have an effect on its mechanical properties? If so, should you be concerned about it? This course examines the effect that translucency has on properties, such as flexural strength and fracture toughness, based on testing performed in the American Dental Association Research Laboratory on specimens prepared by different dental laboratories around the world.

After this course, you will be able to:

  • Discuss the effect of translucency on the mechanical properties of zirconia
  • Describe how dental laboratory processing can affect zirconia restoration outcomes
  • Evaluate how mechanical property values of zirconia are determined
