OBJECTIVE Experimental measurements on various restoration configurations have shown that restored teeth deform under the influence of polymerization shrinkage, but actual residual stresses could not be determined. The purpose of this study was to calculate and validate shrinkage stresses associated with the reported tooth deformations. METHODS Three… CONTINUE READING
