Details about dental ceramics
Ceramic materials or porcelain are used in many dental procedures because they have a hard composition and can imitate quite well the teeth if we are talking about structure. According to their use, a classification of ceramics has been made and here we mention the following:

According to their structure, ceramic materials are classified in important categories, such as:
