STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Different shades of resin cements may adversely affect the final color of translucent restorations, especially thin laminates. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of different types and shades of resin cement and different thicknesses and shades of IPS Empress Esthetic ceramics on the final color of laminate(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the cumulative effect of the abutment tooth and resin cement colour on the resultant optical properties of porcelain laminate veneers (PLVs) fabricated with leucite-based CAD/CAM blocks with different shades and thicknesses. METHODS A total of 224 ceramic specimens were prepared from the IPS Empress CAD with four different shades of(More)
BACKGROUND This study evaluated the prevalence of the signs and symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) among patients with TMD symptoms. METHODS Between September 2011 and December 2011, 243 consecutive patients (171 females, 72 males, mean age 41 years) who were referred to the Department of Prosthodontics, Faculty of Dentistry, Karadeniz(More)
AIM The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of different surface treatments on the bond strength of veneering ceramic to zirconia. METHODS Square (15 mm x 10 mm x 2 mm) zirconia specimens (n=18) received one of the following surface treatments: Group 1, sandblasting; Group 2, Clearfil ceramic primer application; Group 3, grinding; Group 4,(More)
OBJECTIVES Obtaining a perfect aesthetic, especially with the translucent porcelain laminate veneers; shade of the porcelain, type of the resin cement and their long term colour stability are important factors to achieve aesthetic success. The purpose of the study was to assess the effect of different resin cement systems and UV ageing on the colour of full(More)
PURPOSE This study investigated the effect of laser parameters and air-abrasion on the peel strength of silicon-based soft denture liner to different denture resins. MATERIALS AND METHODS Specimens (N=180) were prepared out of three different denture base resins (Rodex, cross-linked denture base acrylic resin; Paladent, heat-cured acrylic resin; Deflex,(More)
OBJECTIVES Full-ceramic systems can be produced by different techniques (layering, heatpressing, CAD/CAM) and have various compositions with different crystalline contents that may affect the optical properties of laminate restorations. METHODS A total of 60 specimens were prepared from e.max Press, e.max CAD, Empress Esthetic, e.max Ceram, Inline, and(More)
PURPOSE Oral rinses are widely used to promote periodontal health with provisional restorations during the interim period. The aim of this study was to compare the discoloration of provisional restoration materials with different oral rinses. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 140 disc-shaped specimens (shade A2) (10 mm x 2 mm) were prepared from one(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether surface treatments affect the translucency of laminate veneers with different shades and thicknesses. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 224 disc-shaped ceramic veneers were prepared from A1, A3, HT (High Translucent) and HO (High Opaque) shades of IPS e.max Press (Ivoclar Vivadent) with 0.5 mm and(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Surface treatments may affect the optical properties of ceramic veneers before cementation. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether various surface treatments affect the optical properties of different types of ceramic veneers. MATERIAL AND METHODS Disk-shaped ceramic veneers (N=280) were prepared from the IPS(More)
