  • OBJECTIVES The aims of this study were to evaluate the adequate thickness of opaque resins for situations such as an oral black cavity and discolored tooth structure, as well as the translucency of each opaque material at various thicknesses. METHODS Six opaque-shade composite resins (Z-350 OA3, Amelogen Universal A2O, Esthet-X A2O, Esthet-X A4O, Charmfil UO, and Aelite Universal OA3) were prepared in metal molds with a hole of 8mm in diameter and various thicknesses (0.5mm, 1.0mm, 1.5mm, 2… CONTINUE READING
