What type of material was used? Certain materials are characterized by their exceptional longevity and reliability, which have been confirmed by numerous scientific studies. Nevertheless, a growing number of all ceramic products on the market is making it increasingly difficult to establish what kind of materials were used to manufacture a restoration. By issuing a patient certificate, in other words, a certificate of authenticity, you have the possibility of assuring your dentists and consequently their patients of the high quality you have provided.
