A new class of CAD/CAM material
June 15, 2013
Dentists with chairside CAD/CAM systems often rely on ceramic blocks to deliver adequate strength and esthetics, as well as to maintain polish and luster over time. Meanwhile, composite blocks are used less frequently, even though their reduced chipping make them easier to mill, and the material’s familiarity to the dentist makes them easier to handle. Additionally, composite blocks offer the ability to deform under a load without breaking.
