Clinical factors affecting the translucency of monolithic Y-TZP ceramics


Pekkan, Gürel; Özcan, Mutlu; Subaşı, Meryem Gülce (2020). Clinical factors affecting the translucency of monolithic Y-TZP ceramics. Odontology / the Society of the Nippon Dental University, 108(4):526-531.

Abstract

The use of monolithic yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystal (Y-TZP) ceramics in aesthetically critical regions is questionable because of the insufficient translucency and opacity of the restorations. Intrinsic (manufacturing process) and extrinsic factors (laboratory procedures and clinical factors) can affect the translucency of monolithic zirconia. In this narrative review, the clinical factors (thickness, cementation type, colour of the monolithic zirconia, surface finishing methods and wear, dental background, cement colour, low temperature degradation) affecting the translucency of monolithic Y-TZP ceramics were reported.
