Sintering temperature accuracy and its effect on translucent yttria-stabilized zirconia: Flexural strength, crystal structure, tetragonality and light transmission -

The aim of this study was to investigate how lower and higher sintering temperature deviations in dental furnaces compared to the recommended firing protocols affected certain material properties of different translucency, chemical composition and recommended sintering temperatures, under the null hypothesis that there will not be any differences in properties investigated between the studied groups.

Solubility and strength of zirconia-based dental materials after artificial aging -

The purpose of this study was to compare the flexure strength of zirconium dioxide materials designed for different sintering techniques before and after surface exposure to an acidic solution and to correlate the dissolution of the materials with strength data.
