Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a hereditary disorder that causes developmental alterations in the structure of enamel. In addition, tooth sensitivity, missing or impacted teeth, taurodontism, altered dental esthetics and anterior open bite can also be associated with AI. This clinical report presents the diagnosis, treatment planning and prosthetic(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the color stability of three acrylic based hard liners (Ufi gel hard, Dura-Liner II, Tokuso Rebase) and two silicone based soft liners (Ufi gel permanent, Molloplast B) by using the colorimeter. METHODS Sixty disc-shaped samples, with uniform size of 10 mm diameter and 2 mm in thickness were fabricated for(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) at the interface on bonding of resin core systems to bovine dentin using different adhesive systems. To this end, the labial surfaces of 60 bovine incisors were ground to obtain flat dentin surfaces and then divided into two groups according to the adhesive system used:(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of different polymerization modes on degree of conversion and micropush-out bond strength of dual-polymerized resin core systems to dentin by using two different adhesive systems. Two resin core systems, Rebilda DC and Build-It FR, were used in combination with total-etch (Adper Scotchbond Multi-Purpose)(More)
OBJECTIVE In this study we compared the micropush-out (micro-PO) and microtensile (micro-TBS) test methods for resin composites on different levels and surfaces of dentin. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty-four sound human molars were divided into two groups in accordance with the dentin surface used (occlusal (O) or mesio-distal (M)), then subdivided into a(More)
The aim of this in vitro study was to assess the effect of pH changes on ion release of metal-ceramic dental casting alloys. Samples from four commercially available alloys (Wirobond C, Wiron 99, Rematitan CP-Ti grade 1, and PontoStar) were prepared and polished. Ion release of alloys subjected to three different pH media (artificial saliva of pH 2.3, pH(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of different resin cement thickness on the push-out bond strength of different posts (CAD/CAM zirconia post (ZR post)) and an individually formed glass fiber reinforced composite post (IPN post) prior to and after thermal cycling (TC). METHODS Post spaces with a height of 9 mm and a diameter(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the polimerization ability of three different light-curing units (quartz tungsten halogen, light-emitting diodes and plasma arc) and their exposure modes (high-intensity and soft-start) by determination of microhardness, water sorption and solubility, and diametral tensile strength of 5 dual-curing resin(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the microhardness of five different resin composites at different irradiation distances (2 mm and 9 mm) by using three light curing units (quartz tungsten halogen, light emitting diodes and plasma arc). METHODS A total of 210 disc-shaped samples (2 mm height and 6 mm diameter) were prepared from different(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effect of different light-curing units and adhesive systems on the bonding of leucite ceramic to dentin. MATERIALS AND METHODS Flat dentin surfaces were ground occlusally on human molars (n = 60). Hot-pressed ceramic blocks of IPS Empress (Ivoclar-Vivadent) were fabricated, air-particle abraded, and cleaned in distilled water.(More)
