The influence of the resin- based cement layer on ceramic-dentin bond strength -

The purpose of the study was to measure the cement thickness obtained when ceramic rods were luted to dentin and to analyze the relation between cement thickness and the previously published tensile bond strength of similar test specimens. In addition, the ISO standard 4049:2019 method was used to determine the film thickness of the used […]

Residual stress in bench- and furnace-cooled porcelain-fused to zirconia appliances -

A new study of veneered zirconia shows that the magnitude of residual stresses can only be estimated reliably from the manufacturers’ thermal expansion coefficients if the veneered prosthesis is cooled slowly after the final firing.

Thermal induced deflection of a porcelain–zirconia bilayer: Influence of cooling rate -

To determine the thermal expansion of a porcelain (VM9) and tetragonal zirconia (Y-TZP) as well as the deflection upon re-heating and cooling of a bilayer fabricated from these two materials after slow and rapid cooling during initial fabrication.

Digital dentistry -

Digital manufacturing using intraoral scanners appears to provide equivalent fit compared to conventional technique for smaller prosthetic constructions. Milled composites have a less toxic potential compared to traditional light cured directly placed composite restorations.
