OBJECTIVE This study evaluated the degree of conversion (DC), maximum rate of cure (Rpmax), and polymerization stress (PS) developed by an experimental dental composite subjected to different(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate early and 24-hour microtensile bond strength (microTBS) and the degree of conversion (DC) of one representative adhesive system from each of the four current bonding approaches.(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of the physical assessment of different light-curing units from 55 dental offices on the irradiance and composite microhardness top/bottom ratio,(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the influence of photoactivation method on degree of conversion (DC), flexural strength (FS), flexural modulus (FM) and Knoop hardness (KHN) of a composite and an unfilled(More)
OBJECTIVE Verify the influence of radiant exposure (H) on composite degree of conversion (DC) and mechanical properties. METHODS Composite was photoactivated with 3, 6, 12, 24, or 48 J/cm(2).(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the microtensile bond strength (microTBS) and hybrid layer morphology of different adhesive systems, either followed by treatment with Nd:YAG(More)
