The purpose of the present in vitro study was to compare the two-body wear resistance of a type 3 gold alloy (Aurocast8), two lithium disilicate glass ceramics (IPS e.max CAD and IPS e.max Press), a heat-pressed feldspathic porcelain (Cerabien ZR Press), an yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystal ceramic (Katana Zirconia ML), and three heat-cured composite resins (Ceram.X Universal, Enamel Plus Function, and Enamel Plus HRi) opposing antagonistic cusps made out of the same restorative…

Wear Properties of Different Additive Restorative Materials Used for Onlay/Overlay Posterior Restorations.
The heat-cured resin-based composite material Enamel Plus Bio-Function and the type III gold alloy demonstrated similar mean values for wear depth and volumetric loss.
Wear Characteristics of Dental Ceramic CAD/CAM Materials Opposing Various Dental Composite Resins
Zirconia showed significantly less volumetric loss than lithium disilicate or leucite regardless of composite resin type, and Estelite Σ Quick showed significantly more weight loss than Filtek Supreme Ultra, MI Gracefil, or Gradia Direct P regardless of ceramic type.

The different types of tested ceramics showed similar wear resistance when opposed to monolithic zirconia and surface roughness was analyzed by using a digital image analysis software program.
Effects of polishing vs. glazing on dental ceramic wear: A comparative in vitro study
Polishing MZ had adverse effects on the corresponding antagonist wear, and Glazed MZ showed the lowest antagonist wear.
Wear, Microhardness and Fracture Toughness of Different CAD/CAM Ceramics
BruxZir showed the best wear behavior and the worst abrasiveness to enamel and both parameters were not affected by thermo-mechanical aging of wear test for the three tested ceramics.
Factors Affecting the Wear Behavior of Monolithic Zirconia and the Antagonists: Literature Review
Books suggest that zirconia monolithic restorations are wear resistant and unlikely to cause excessive wear to the antagonist, especially when compared to feldspathic porcelain and glass-ceramics.
Wear behavior of current computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing composites and reinforced high performance polymers: An in vitro study.
The behavior of polyetheretherketone against enamel was different from glass ceramics and composite materials in terms of the amount of wear.
Influence of zirconia and lithium disilicate tooth- or implant-supported crowns on wear of antagonistic and adjacent teeth
The clinically relevant model with human antagonistic and adjacent teeth allowed for a limited comparison of the wear situation and the total number of wear traces and strong wear on crowns, antagonisticand adjacent teeth were influenced by crown material.
A State-of-the-Art Review on the Wear of the Occlusal Surfaces of Natural Teeth and Prosthetic Crowns
More research in this area is needed for a better understanding of the mechanisms involved at the occlusal surfaces wear, essential for the development of more suitable restoration materials.


Wear properties of a novel resin composite compared to human enamel and other restorative materials.
Heat-cured HRi function and Aurocast8 showed similar mean values for wear depth and volumetric loss, and their results did not statistically differ in comparison with the human enamel.
An evaluation of wear when enamel is opposed by various ceramic materials and gold.
In vitro wear of four ceramic materials and human enamel on enamel antagonist.
Leucite-reinforced glass, lithium disilicate glass, and feldspathic porcelain showed wear values closer to those for human enamel than did yttria-stabilized zirconia.
Wear performance of monolithic dental ceramics with different surface treatments.
Translucent and shaded experimental zirconia yielded superior wear behavior and lower antagonistic wear compared to lithium disilicate, and a trend to higher ceramic and antagonism wear was shown after grinding and glazing.
A study on the in-vitro wear of the natural tooth structure by opposing zirconia or dental porcelain
The degree of antagonistic tooth wear was less in zirconia than feldspathic dental porcelain, representing that the zirConia may be more beneficial in terms of antagonism tooth wear.
