Lanthanum glass frits suitable for infiltration in pre-sintered alumina were developed in order to obtain innovative alumina–glass composites, which are promising materials for all-ceramic dental prosthetic restorations, such as single crowns and fixed partial dentures. Glass compositions belonging to the lanthanum-silicate-borate system were synthesized in order to reinforce and give an improved esthetic appearance to the pre-sintered Al2O3. Fifteen formulations, defined by using a mixture design approach, were melted and quenched in water at room temperature in order to obtain the frits. Those exhibiting the lower melting temperatures were tested for infiltration into Al2O3 to obtain Al2O3/glass composites. The frits and the composites were characterized by X-Ray diffraction, differential thermal analyses, hot stage microscopy, colorimetry (Hunter color scale) and scanning electron microscopy. The mechanical properties of the composites, in terms of flexure strength, were evaluated using a three-point bending tests.
