FRC is a material combination of polymer matrix and reinforcing fibers with multiple dental applications. Fibers are the reinforcing component of the system that confers resistance against the applied load on the restoration. Comparing with other restorative materials, FRC present an adequate toughness, high stiffness and strength per weight. These properties are tributary to the characteristics of each component separately but also to the ratio and interaction between them. The performances of FRC restorations depend on the correct clinical decision, appropriate selection and handling of the materials.
