A Simple Way to Fix Porcelain Chipping in a Full Arch Implant-Supported ProsthesisBy Ricardo Mitrani on October 7, 2020 | comments
When delivering a full arch layered zirconia implant-supported prosthesis, a relatively common complication is chipping or fracture of the layered porcelain. Nowadays, we are moving away from prostheses that need 360-degree layered ceramics to a minimal layering design or fully monolithic to minimize the risk of chipping.
This visual essay walks through the basic steps of solving a fracture problem on a full arch layered zirconia implant-supported prosthesis.
A step-by-step technique to solve the porcelain chipping/fracture of a full arch layered zirconia implant-supported prosthesis is a very simple way to fix this problem without remaking the entire prosthesis.
