Materials selection is the second in the series on crowns and other extra-coronal restorations. Some of us are less than inspired by dental materials science. Nevertheless, many of the things that concern us clinically with crowns and their alternatives are based on material properties. We worry about the strength of the restoration, how well it fits and its aesthetics. We also worry about wear, occlusal control and biocompatibility. Not least of our concerns are dental laboratory charges, which inevitably have to be passed on to the patient.
