STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Generalized wear of composite resins in the noncontact area may result in changes of gloss, which can influence esthetics of restorations. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the changes in gloss of composite resins after generalized wear simulation. Surface roughness and amount of wear were measured for comparison. MATERIAL AND METHODS Generalized wear simulation was performed with a wear tester for 400,000 cycles with 6 composite resins (Estelite Sigma… CONTINUE READING
