Damage tolerance in CAD/CAM restorative materials

Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


Purpose/aim: CAD CAM materials are brittle in nature and thus are prone to failure from flaws that may have been formed during milling or developed during their service lifetime. Accordingly, in order to design new and improved restorative materials, a good understanding is needed of their damage tolerance properties. The aim of this study was to investigate the damage tolerance properties of the newly developed CAD/CAM ceramics with emphasis on the mechanisms of crack propagation and the role of microstructure in toughening.
