Clinical Evaluation of Repairing Material in Fractured Porcelain Crown: A Cross Sectional Study


Background: About 5-8% porcelain from prosthesis such as crown or bridge can be fractured. Metal-ceramic crown fracture does not necessarily mean failure of the restoration.

Recently porcelain crown repairing material (Kit Reparo De Ceramica) is introduced that facilitates micromechanical retention as well as chemico-physical bonding between resin and the ceramic or metal alloy.
