Aim of the investigation was to assess the effect of different surface treatments on the bond strength of veneering ceramics to zirconia. In a shear test, the influences of polishing, sandblasting, and silica-coating of the zirconia surface on bonding were assessed with five different veneering ceramics. In addition the effect of liner application was(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the bonding potential of a universal composite resin cement and an adhesive/composite system to differently pre-treated PEEK surfaces. METHODS One hundred and fifty PEEK disks were embedded in epoxy resin, polished (P4000 grit) and treated as follows (n=30/group): (A) no treatment, (B) acid etching with sulfuric acid (98%) for 1 min,(More)
OBJECTIVES The flexural strengths of veneering ceramics for zirconia were compared. METHODS With 10 different veneering ceramics for zirconia (test group) and three different veneering ceramics for the metal-ceramic technique (control group) three-point flexural strength and biaxial flexural strength according to ISO 6872: 1995 as well as four-point(More)
OBJECTIVES This study determined the two-body wear and toothbrushing wear parameters, including gloss and roughness measurements and additionally Martens hardness, of nine aesthetic CAD/CAM materials, one direct resin-based nanocomposite plus that of human enamel as a control group. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two-body wear was investigated in a(More)
OBJECTIVE This study tested whether the two-body wear of monolithic zirconia and their corresponding enamel antagonists was higher compared to monolithic alloy and veneered zirconia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cylindrical specimens (N = 36, n = 6) were prepared out of (A) veneered zirconia (VZ), (B) glazed zirconia using a glaze ceramic (GZC), (C) glazed(More)
OBJECTIVE Resin infiltration is considered as a treatment option for initial caries lesions. As cavitated early lesions might require additional restorative intervention, a caries infiltrant might be also used for enamel conditioning prior to composite insertion. This study aimed to analyse the shear bond strength of a flowable composite to sound and(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether zirconia abutments with an internal connection exhibit similar fracture load as zirconia abutments with an external connection. MATERIALS AND METHODS The following zirconia abutments were divided into four groups of 20 each: StraumannCARES abutments on Straumann implants (group A), Procera abutments on Branemark implants(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyse the marginal fit of 4-unit fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) and the accuracy of three-dimensional cast-datasets using both approaches to Computer Aided Design (CAD)/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM): direct and indirect digitalization. METHODS A titanium model of a 4-unit FDP was digitized by an intraoral scanning device (iTero, Align(More)
OBJECTIVES Due to its high fracture toughness ceria-stabilized ZrO(2)/Al(2)O(3) nanocomposite (Ce-TZP/A) could be superior to Y-TZP in clinical use. However, the compatibility to veneering ceramics is not yet investigated and therefore subject of this study. METHODS Fracture strength and crazing resistance of veneered Ce-TZP/A frameworks (Nanozir,(More)
Thermal misfit is deemed as one reason for the chipping of veneered zirconia restorations. Aim of the present study was to assess the effect of thermal misfit on the fracture load of veneered zirconia frameworks and to evaluate the applicability of a universal veneering ceramic for both zirconia and titanium frameworks. Fracture loads of zirconia and(More)
