This study investigated the contrast ratio and grain size depending on sintering parameters of twelve different zirconia materials and compared with glass-ceramic (N=156, n=12 per group). Contrast ratio of all ceramics was measured using a spectrophotometer according to ISO 2471: 2008. Grain sizes of zirconia were determined by SEM. Data was analyzed using… CONTINUE READING
