The application of Fortify (Bisco, Lombard, IL), an unfilled resin, to the surface of composite resin restorations is intended to fill in defects in the surface that persist despite polishing, improve marginal integrity, and increase these materials' resistance to abrasion. The aim of this study was to observe the surface texture by scanning electron microscopy and measure the microhardness of the surface. For each sample of composite resin covered with glaze, 40 measurements were made of the… CONTINUE READING
