INTRODUCTION Indirect composites are developed to overcome the shortcomings of direct composites but, the adhesion of resin cements to indirect composites is still difficult. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the surface morphology of indirect resin composite treated by different powers of Er:YAG laser using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). METHODS indirect resin composite blocks (GC Gradia DA2, Japan) with 15× 10 × 10 mm dimensions were made according to manufacturer's… CONTINUE READING
