  • Objective – This study evaluated the influence of toothbrushing and thermal cycling on surface roughness and weight alterations of four different composite resins. Methods – Five specimens of two nanofilled composites (Filtek Supreme and Esthet X), one submicron composite (spherical filler) (Palfique Estelite) and one microhybrid composite (irregular filler) (Filtek Z250/3M ESPE), were prepared according to the manufacturer’s directions. Each specimen was thermal cycled 1,200 times and… CONTINUE READING
