Functional, compositional, and regulatory analyses of imported and non‐imported single dental crowns -

The aim of the study were to investigate functional and esthetic properties, the composition of the alloy, and the content of hazardous elements of single dental crowns with metal skeleton and fired porcelain.

Ductility of a dental Ag-Pd-Cu-Au alloy -

A silver-palladium type of dental alloy for fixed restorations has been investigated with regard to the ability of the material to be plastically deformed in uniaxial tensile testing after two different age-hardening treatments. A certain degree of ductility is required for the burnishing of the margins.

Phase equilibrium in Ag-Pd-Cu dental alloys -

A dental alloy consisting of Ag-Pd-Cu-Au has been annealed at various temperatures and subsequently quenched to produce a solid solution before a hardening heat treatment. The phases present were studied by means of X-ray diffraction measurements.
