Materials for Dental Restorations

Different types of materials are used in dental restorations. As science and technology advance, new compounds and new methods of using them are discovered, and old ones – discarded. For simplicity’s sake, two broad classes of materials can be defined: those that have metal and those that don’t. Within each class there are higher grade materials and lower grade materials. All materials considered below are used in both crowns and bridges, hence, in implants as well (as they are topped with a normal crown or a bridge).
