Poster Information
Abstract: Metal / ceramic restorations have successful clinical results for many years, but they have various significant disadvantages, like allergic reactions, aesthetic dissatisfaction, and the color of the metal substructure. To eliminate such disadvantages, interest in full ceramic systems and fiber-reinforced composites (FRC) is increasing rapidly. The most important advantage of FRC over conventional materials is their easy manipulation, so most of the FRC applications done in chairside, with minimal or without laboratory work. FRC has high mechanical properties, especially under dynamic loading conditions. This review aims to explain the physical and mechanical properties of FRC's, their types using in dentistry, and their applications in the prosthetic field, based on current literature knowledge.
Material and methods: A thorough literature search, with no limitation, was done up to July 2019.
Result: Fiber-reinforced restorations have become an option for metal-free prosthetic restorations. Although FRC bridges offer effective solutions for both patients and dentists, more long-term clinical studies are needed to improve the success of the technique.
Summary: This review aims to explain the physical and mechanical properties of FRC's, their types using in dentistry, and their applications in fixed dental prostheses, based on current literature knowledge.
