A study was conducted to compare the compressive strength, diametral tensile strength, transverse flexural strength, and flexural modulus of a microfilled and a small particle composite resin restorative material following argon laser and conventional visible light polymerization techniques. All physical properties examined in this study were enhanced by laser polymerization. The diametral tensile strength of both types of restorative materials was significantly greater following laser… CONTINUE READING
