For the clinician today there is a large range of all ceramic materials from which to choose. In some situations, only certain dental ceramics can be used with some materials being optimized for special purposes. It is important not only for the dental technician, but also for the dentist to know the specific properties, advantages and disadvantages of all ceramic restorative materials in order to achieve the best possible success rates, as ceramic materials are inherently prone to fracture due to their brittleness. In this lecture the various indications where dental ceramics can be used are explained and appropriate material options presented. Special attention is directed to the difference between the anterior region, which can be regarded as a low risk region, and the posterior region which demands special consideration, due to the higher occlusal forces, found on molars and premolars.
