The aim of this study was to evaluate the marginal adaptation of CEREC ceramic inlays, CEREC composite inlays and direct composite restorations in unbeveled proximal slot cavities under artificial aging conditions. Two groups of each restoration type were prepared (n = 6), one group with a self-etch adhesive, the other group with H3PO4 enamel etching before(More)
This study investigated the influence of time delay and duration of photo-activation on linear polymerization shrinkage, shrinkage force, and hardening of a dual-cured core build-up resin composite. The test material (Rebilda DC) was light-cured for 20 or 60 s either early (2 min) or late (7 min) after the start of mixing. Non-irradiated self-cured(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the marginal adaptation of bulk-fill composites in class II MO cavities. METHODS Standardized class II MO cavities with bevelled enamel margins were prepared in 40 extracted human molars. The teeth were randomly assigned to one of the five experimental groups (n=8). The teeth were restored with two horizontal increments of(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to evaluate how cavity linings with different elastic modulus can influence the marginal adaptation (MA) of Class II composite restorations before and after thermo-mechanical loading. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty Class II cavities with margins extending 1 mm below the cement-enamel junction were prepared in extracted(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the marginal adaptation of mixed Class V cavities restored with Clearfil Protect Bond (Kuraray), Clearfil SE Bond (Kuraray), and two experimental combinations of both marketed adhesives, after fatigue and water storage. MATERIALS AND METHODS Four groups (Clearfil Protect Bond, Clearfil SE Bond, Exp. 1 and Exp. 2) of Class V cavities(More)
PURPOSE To present an updated knowledge on the restorative options and their performance in the particular environment of non-carious cervical lesions (NCCL). METHODS Evidence-based support for a proper restoration of NCCL was searched. For this purpose, literature over the last 10 years available in the MEDLINE database was reviewed. Previous systematic(More)
This study aims to evaluate the fracture resistance of endodontically treated anterior teeth restored with crowns made of composite or ceramic and retained without the use of a post (endocrowns) or with posts of 5 mm (short) and 10 mm in length (long). Forty-eight intact maxillary incisors were selected for the study. After endodontic treatment, the crowns(More)
To evaluate the stain susceptibility of CAD/CAM blocks and direct composite after long term exposure to various staining agents. 40 disk-shaped samples were fabricated from each of nine materials; six CAD/CAM (Vitablocs Mark II, Paradigm MZ100, Experimental Vita Hybrid Ceramic, Vita Enamic, Experimental Kerr and Lava Ultimate) and three direct composites(More)
PURPOSE Due to an increased prevalence of non-carious cervical lesions (NCCL), a clinical strategy for this lesion type should be considered. Previous reviews focused mainly on etiology and prevalence. In Part 1 of this paper, an evidence-based support for a preventive strategy of NCCL was elaborated. METHODS Literature over the last 10 years available in(More)
PURPOSE This study evaluated the marginal adaptation of supragingivally relocated cervical margins. Newly developed and reference materials were compared. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty-eight extracted human teeth were divided into 11 groups. A standardized boxshaped cavity (4.0 mm mesiodistal width, 1.5 mm axial depth) was prepared on each tooth with the(More)
