ASLAM, A; HASSAN, SH; NAYYER, M  e  AHMED, B. Intraoral repair protocols for fractured metal-ceramic restorations - Literature review. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2018, vol.73, n.1, pp.35-41. ISSN 0375-1562.

Metal ceramic restorations are still widely used for prosthodontic rehabilitation of compromised teeth and in general are durable and long lasting. However, post-fitting complications in metal-ceramic crowns and fixed partial dentures do occur. One of the most frequently encountered complications in metal-ceramic systems is the fracture of veneering porcelain, becoming a dental emergency, especially when located in the anterior region. Replacing the entire restoration may not be the most practical solution. Intraoral repair of the fractured porcelain offers an easy and cost-effective alternative. The exact protocol for repair varies with the type of fracture that has occurred. This paper provides an overview of various methods of repairing different types of porcelain fractures with an aim to help clinicians manage these dental emergencies in a more effective and conservative manner.

Palavras-chave : fracture; ceramics; intra-oral repair; veneering porcelain.
