Fibre-reinforced Composite in Clinical Dentistry
Garoushi, Sufyan K. / Lassila, Lippo V. J. / Vallittu, Pekka K.
The use of fibre-reinforced composite (FRC) technology in clinical dentistry may solve many of the problems associated with a metal alloy substructure such as corrosion, toxicity, complexity of fabrication, high cost and aesthetic limitation. There are societies where the use of FRC has become common such as in the U.S., Finland, Belgium and the Netherlands. However, the widespread use of this material is still limited. This article briefly presents background and clinical applications of FRC in dentistry.
