All-Ceramic Fixed Partial Denture Cores Prepared Using Water-Based Alumina Tapes

Abstract:

Article Preview

Aqueous-based alumina tape, prepared using acrylate emulsion binder, was employed to form 3-unit all-ceramic anterior fixed partial denture core structures. Formability, linear shrinkage, and strength of the tape were optimized by adjusting tape composition to a/(a+b+p)=0.84 and b/(b+p)=0.5. Marginal fitness of the core framework was acceptable for clinical applications when more than two points on lingual side of core structure were placed to touch a plate during sintering. The 3-unit all-ceramic anterior fixed partial denture utilized ceramic tape has functioned successfully for 3 years without any loss of structural integrity and esthetics.
