OBJECTIVE An analysis is made of the influence of continuous compression loading on different types of cast posts and cores and its effects on the crowns and teeth. METHOD AND MATERIALS Thirty extracted maxillary canines were prepared and divided into three groups (n = 10) according to the type of cast posts and cores used for restoration: chrome-nickel(More)
UNLABELLED To evaluate bond strengths of different resin cements to two aluminum oxide-based ceramics. METHODS One hundred ten ceramic cylinders were produced and given four different surface treatments. Resin cement cylinders were then bonded to the ceramic cylinders using different resin cements and the bond strength was determined by shear testing to(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate bond strengths of zirconium-oxide (zirconia) ceramic and a selection of different composite resin cements. STUDY DESIGN 130 Lava TM cylinders were fabricated. The cylinders were sandblasted with 80 µm aluminium oxide or silica coated with CoJet Sand. Silane, and bonding agent and/or Clearfil Ceramic Primer(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine whether the bond of veneering porcelain to a ceramic core in bilayered ceramics was similar to that of the metal ceramic control of well known behaviour. STUDY DESIGN Six groups of nine specimens each were fabricated, whose dimensions were 15 mm long and 8 mm in diameter at the core, and 2 mm long and 8(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the vertical misfit between different brands of dental implants and prosthetic abutments, with or without mechanical torque, and to study their possible combination. STUDY DESIGN Five different brands of implant were used in the study: Biofit (Castemaggiore, Italy), Bioner S.A. (Barcelona, Spain), 3i Biomet (Palm Beach, U.S.A.), BTI(More)
This study analyzed the shear strength and fracture characteristics of the interface between zirconia samples and their veneering ceramic compared with a metal-ceramic and a lithium disilicate glass-ceramic control group together with an assessment of the possible relationship between the fracture characteristics and the recorded shear strength.
