A review of data collected for polymer-based restorative materials in the period 2005-2011. -

Forty-two randomly picked materials with some of the shades available were examined for depth of cure, flexural strength, water sorption and water solubility, and shade and color stability.

Color stability of denture base polymers -

One light-polymerized, three heat-polymerized, and three autopolymerized denture base polymers were exposed to coffee, tea, water at 50 degrees C +/- 1 degree C, as well as artificial sunlight and water, and evaluated for color stability.

Staining of resin-based veneering materials with coffee and tea -

The absorption and penetration of colorants into the organic phase of the veneering materials were probably due to compatibility of the polymer phase with the yellow colorants of coffee.

Some properties of a denture acrylic coating -

The water sorption, solubility, hardness, and color stability of thin specimens of auto-polymerized and heat-polymerized denture base polymers with and without a UV light-polymerized coating material were investigated
