Objective: The objective of this study was to compare the flexural strength of four dental computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) glass-ceramics, i.e., lithium-disilicate-based (IPS e.max CAD; EMX), leucite-based (IPS Empress CAD; EMP) and two zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate glass-ceramics (CELTRA DUO; CD and VITA SUPRINITY; VS). Materials and methods: Thirty bar-shaped specimens (1.5mm x 4mm x 18mm) were prepared for each material by cutting from rectangular…

Assessment of the in-vitro fracture resistance of three CAD/CAM ceramic materials found Strengthening with zirconia particles did not have a positive influence on the fracture resist of neither the glass ceramic nor the composite resin materials tested.

Flexural Strength of Vitreous Ceramics Based on Lithium Disilicate and Lithium Silicate Reinforced with Zirconia for CAD/CAM

The dental prosthesis market is rapidly evolving to meet patient and clinical demands. These new materials must have good flexural strength, toughness, aesthetic properties, and reliability in



Flexural strength and microstructure of two lithium disilicate glass ceramics for CAD/CAM restoration in the dental clinic

Comparisons of flexural strength before and after heat treatment of two lithium disilicate CAD/CAM blocks, IPS e.max CAD and Rosetta SM, show no significant differences.

In-vitro strength degradation of dental ceramics and novel PICN material by sharp indentation.

Mechanical properties of resin-ceramic CAD/CAM restorative materials.

Effect of test method on flexural strength of recent dental ceramics.

The biaxial flexural strength and 3-point bending strength of all ceramics, except OPC 3G and Crys-Cera, were significantly greater than the corresponding 4- point bending strength, which is contrary to the other ceramic types.

Comparative characterization of a novel cad-cam polymer-infiltrated-ceramic-network

The flexural strength, elastic modulus similar to a tooth as well as having less hardness than ceramics make PICN materials an option to consider as a restorative material.

Weibull analysis and flexural strength of hot-pressed core and veneered ceramic structures.

Flexural resistance of Cerec CAD/CAM system ceramic blocks. Part 1: Chairside materials.

All the tested materials had a flexural strength greater than 100 MPa, thereby satisfying the requirements of the ISO standard for the clinical indications of the materials tested.

Biaxial flexural strength, elastic moduli, and x-ray diffraction characterization of three pressable all-ceramic materials.

Improved mechanical properties of Empress 2 and experimental ceramic over those of IPS Empress were attributed to the nature and amount of their crystalline content lithium disilicate.
