A review of the state of the art of metal ceramic and all-porcelain restorations is made. Metal ceramic systems are discussed relative to current fabrication techniques, porcelain margin techniques, marginal adaptation, and esthetics. The material properties, marginal adaptation, and esthetics of all-porcelain restorations are reviewed. Additionally, observations of metal ceramic and all-porcelain restorative systems currently in development are presented.

    The article cites several dental procedures that can help improve outcomes for both all-ceramic and metal-ceramic restorations. It recommends a 1.5 millimeter (mm) buccal reduction and 0.5 mm palatal reduction for metal-ceramic, while a 1.5 mm reduction all over for all-ceramic restorations....

    The article discusses the basic principles of staining and glazing porcelain-veneered restorations. It mentions that the darkness of a restoration can not be lightened without reducing translucency. It notes that restorations can be darkened by grey stain and complementary colours. It states...
