ND5+ Value and the principles of ingot selection (Module 4)
Nowadays, the choice of the right material for restoring anterior teeth can be still challenging for both the dentist and for the dental technician. On the market we have a large variety of dental materials for prosthetic restorations (metal-ceramics, zirconia, feldspar ceramics, LS2, etc). The parameters that render a material to be fit for an esthetic rehabilitation are: the type of the restoration, the shade of the abutment, the final shade of the restoration and the fracture resistance of the material.
Restoring non-vital teeth through an all-ceramic system can be a big challenge. The final restoration should re-establish the properties of the natural tooth, both as morphology and color, to try to copy it, recovering the initial value and fluorescence starting from the interior of the tooth, using materials that compensate for these dis-coloration. In our practical experience, for good results when restoring non-vital teeth where the abutment shade is ND5+ or more, we had established a dentist – dental technician working protocol when using e.max system – the most complex and complete system of our days.
