Chipping of veneering porcelain is the most frequent complication in all ceramic restorations with zirconia frameworks. In cases of major chipping, replacement of the affected restoration may be necessary.

Complications after the placement of implant supported fixed dental prostheses occur over time as a result of fatigue and stress. High strength ceramics offers new options to serve as veneering material in a sintering technique with zirconia frameworks.

In conclusion the purpose of three case presentations here was to describe the use of lithium disilicate ceramic on zirconia frameworks.
