Alumina is a well-known dental ceramic material that has made waves within the dental industry for its good aesthetics and strength when compared to older materials for fixed prostheses, such as crown and bridgework. To be able to confidently use this material, a clinician should understand the physical and optical properties so as to know why and how this material might work in various clinical settings. This part of the ceramic series aims to explore the various alumina-based ceramic systems available on the market and discuss their properties, applications and indications. We also intend to briefly describe the preparation design requirements and cementation protocol for this type of ceramic. © 2022.
