    5. VITA Enamic

    VITA ENAMIC® Hybrid CAD/CAM dental ceramic has a dual-network structure that is said to combine the best properties of ceramic and composite materials. The dominant VITA ENAMICceramic network structure and the reinforcing polymer network structure are fully merged with one another, similar to the way that steel reinforces concrete.

    The ceramic offers high fracture load capacity, while also ensuring elasticity and integrated crack prevention. Less brittleness than a pure dental ceramic as well as abrasion properties superior to that of conventional composite, results in characteristics similar to those of natural dentition. It is resistant to the shear and compressive forces of the jaw and natural teeth, allowing the material to be used for a variety of applications.
