OBJECTIVES To present an overview of fiber-reinforced composites (FRCs) that are a group of non-metallic dental biomaterials used in several fields of dentistry. METHODS A range of relevant publications from the past half century are surveyed, with emphasis upon recent publications. RESULTS FRCs vary according to the type of fiber fillers and orientation of fibers, the latter being responsible for several properties which can vary from isotropic to anisotropic. The length of the fibers, i.e… CONTINUE READING
