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… Expand

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. Expand
In-vitro strength degradation of dental ceramics and novel PICN material by sharp indentation.
This study aims to indicate the likely clinical behavior by evaluating the damage tolerance and R-curve behavior of dental ceramics by in-vitro strength degradation and fracture toughness measurements. Expand
Mechanical properties of resin-ceramic CAD/CAM restorative materials.
The new-generation polymer-based materials tested in this study exhibited significantly higher flexural strength and modulus of resilience, along with lower flexural modulus values compared with the tested ceramic or hybrid materials. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Fracture toughness and hardness evaluation of three pressable all-ceramic dental materials.
Both materials exhibited fracture toughness anisotropy following pressing and demonstrated improved fracture toughness and reduced hardness compared with IPS-Empress P<0.05(ANOVA), which should be beneficial for clinical applications. Expand
Weibull analysis and flexural strength of hot-pressed core and veneered ceramic structures.
To test the hypothesis that the Weibull moduli of single- and multilayer ceramics are controlled primarily by the structural reliability of the core ceramic, seven groups of 20 bar specimens were made from the following materials. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
