The learning objective of this article is to present specific diagnostic techniques to establish predictable identification and reproduction of the natural anatomy and nuance color characteristics exhibited by natural dentition with composite resin.
Effect of three surface treatments on the adhesive properties of indirect composite restorations.
It is suggested that sandblasting treatment was the main factor responsible in improving the retentive properties of indirect composite restorations and Roughening the composite area of adhesion, sandblasted, or bothSandblasting and silanizing can provide statistically significant additional resistance to tensile load.
Adhesive Cementation of Indirect Composite Inlays and Onlays: A Literature Review.
In terms of survival rate and esthetic long-term outcomes, indirect composite resin techniques have proven to be clinically acceptable and the correct management of adhesive cementation protocols requires knowledge of adhesive principles and adherence to the clinical protocol in order to obtain durable bonding between tooth structure and restorative materials.
Determination and communication of color using the five color dimensions of teeth.
A concept of color that has evolved from the observation and study of extracted and in vivo natural dentition is proposed to provide the clinician with a predictable method of determining color from clinical evidence.
Wear properties of a novel resin composite compared to human enamel and other restorative materials.
Heat-cured HRi function and Aurocast8 showed similar mean values for wear depth and volumetric loss, and their results did not statistically differ in comparison with the human enamel.
Indirect composite restorations in the anterior region: a predictable technique for complex cases.
The indirect composite inlay technique demonstrates excellent aesthetic results in the posterior regions, achieved by reproducing the shape, color, and contour of the natural tooth on a cast model
The influence of adhesive thickness on the microtensile bond strength of three adhesive systems.
Multiple adhesive coats significantly affected bond strength to dentin and an excess of adhesive layer thickness can negatively influence the strength and the quality of adhesion.
Gingival recessions and noncarious cervical lesions: a soft and hard tissue challenge.
The long term success of mucogingival recessions and noncarious cervical lesions is always strictly bound to the identification and elimination of the etiologic factors, to a correct treatment and a meticulous maintenance program.
Wear Evaluation of Prosthetic Materials Opposing Themselves.
The purpose of the present in vitro study was to compare the two-body wear resistance of a type 3 gold alloy, two lithium disilicate glass ceramics, and two opposing antagonistic cusps made out of the same restorative materials.
