STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Failure of a restoration, where a part of a ceramic inlay and/or a cusp is fractured, is a common clinical problem. The application of fiber-reinforced composites at the tooth-inlay interface may prevent undesirable fractures in dental restorations. There is little information regarding the effect of a fiber- reinforced composite layer(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)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of orthotropic fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) at the interface on bonding of lithium-disilicate ceramic to dentin and enamel using different adhesive systems. MATERIAL AND METHODS Dentin and enamel surfaces were ground occlusally on human molar teeth. Ceramic blocks of IPS Empress 2 (Ivoclar-Vivadent) were fabricated.(More)
