OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of a prophylaxis paste on surface roughness of different composites, enamel, dentin and porcelain surfaces. METHODS Three different composites (FiltekZ250/Group1, Filtek Supreme XT/Group2, Premise/Group3), enamel/Group4, dentin/Group5 and porcelain/Group6 samples were used in this study. All specimens were prepared flat(More)
This study evaluated the long-term clinical performance of porcelain laminate veneers luted with hybrid composite in combination with total-etch and self-etch adhesive systems. The study was performed on 30 patients ranging in age between 28 and 54 years. Ten veneers were performed per patient in the maxillary arch. In Group 1, 150 teeth were treated with(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate acid-etching effects prior to the application of self-etching primer and the effect of different primer application techniques on dentin shear bond strength (SBS). MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty human third molar cervical regions were used in this study. The teeth were randomly divided into four groups (n=10) of different tooth surface(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of Er:YAG laser irradiation on shear-bond strength of self-adhesive resin cements to dentin. BACKGROUND DATA Different laser-irradiation settings are used for dentin-surface pretreatment, which may affect the bond strength of resins. METHODS Fourty-five extracted third molars were(More)
