The effect of toothbrushing on surface gloss of resin composites.

Abstract

PURPOSE To determine the changes in surface gloss of different composite materials after laboratory toothbrushing simulation. METHODS 36 specimens were fabricated for each material and polished with 120-, 220-, 500-, 1200-, 2400- and 4000-grit SiC abrasive paper, respectively. Gloss measurements were made with a glossmeter (Novocurve) prior to testing… (More)
