Copy-milled all-ceramic restorations: case reports.Quintessence Int. 2002 May; 33(5):353-7.QI
When all-ceramic systems are used, a respect for biocompatibility, an understanding of the patient's esthetic demands, and a justifiable reliance on the strength of the selected system are integral to success. Severely damaged molar teeth in two patients were restored with all-ceramic onlays that were prepared with a copy-milling system for ceramics. The onlay patterns were fabricated directly in the mouth with autopolymerizing resin. For these patients, the use of biologic, all-ceramic, copy-milled restorations resulted in clinical success as well as recovered function and esthetics.
