Summary: As patients have become more and more demanding regarding esthetic and biocompatibility aspects of their dental restorations, ceramic material has become a main object of scientific interest especially from the material point of view. In this context, we propose an evaluation of the structural, mechanical and biocompatibility properties of a new generation bearing, zirconia toughened alumina ceramics. The proposed composites for our study are prepared by using modern processing technologies – spark plasma sintering – taking the advantage of our previous colaboration in the framework of Romania- Turkey Bilateral Cooperation, contract nr.385/2010.
