Prospective Randomized Clinical Trial on the Survival of Lithium Disilicate Posterior Partial Crowns Bonded Using Immediate or Delayed Dentin Sealing: Short-term Results on Tooth Sensitiv...
No tooth sensitivity change is detected with the application of partial ceramic indirect restorations. This clinical study could not confirm that immediate dentin sealing is more advantageous than delayed dentin sealing in terms of tooth sensitivity or patient satisfaction with 1 year of clinical service of partial ceramic restorations.
The interaction between different substances on resin composite surfaces is a critical issue in the assessment of the clinical longevity of restorative materials.
This study provides clinicians with insight into the in vitro differences in the performance of commercially available fluoride varnishes. More clinical research is needed to equip dentists with evidence that will help them make better treatment choices.
Highly translucent fully stabilized zirconia can be less fracture resistant than lithium disilicate and partially stabilized zirconia depending on the thickness.
Effect of Thermocycling on Biaxial Flexural Strength of CAD/CAM, Bulk Fill, and Conventional Resin Composite Materials
Biaxial flexural strength of tested materials vary with composition and thermocycling significantly decreases their strength. Future clinical studies should evaluate if recommendations based on cavity size and tooth location improve long-term performance.
CLINICAL TECHNIQUE/CASE REPORT
Use of Transparent Tips for Obtaining Tight Proximal Contacts in Direct Class II Composite Resin Restorations
The use of the LM-Contact Former system, which uses transparent plastic cone-shaped tips, allows obtaining tight proximal contacts in posterior Class II composite resin restorations with a simple technique. Filling the remaining cavity after removing the transparent tip with a bulk-fill flowable resin-based composite decreases the total working time.
Porcelain laminate veneers offer a reliable and successful esthetic treatment, maintaining the long-term gingival health of the surrounding tissues.
Bleaching gels stored at room temperature or kept refrigerated before immediate use showed similar results for color stability, tooth sensitivity, and pH. However, the consistency of the gels when dispensed may be affected by storage temperature.
Whitening Efficacy of Chewing Gum Containing Sodium Metaphosphate on Coffee Stain: Placebo-controlled, Double-blind In Situ Examination
Chewing gum containing sodium metaphosphate is useful for whitening after eating colored food.
Bonding Performance of Simplified Adhesive Systems in Noncarious Cervical Lesions at 2-year Follow-up: A Double-blind Randomized Clinical Trial
The composition and adhesion strategy of current simplified adhesives may be used for noncarious cervical lesions with minimal dentin sclerosis.
The Use of Composite Layering Technique to Mask a Discolored Background: Color Analysis of Masking Ability After Aging—Part II
The masking ability of resin composites can change over time and influence long-term performance of multilayered restorations.
The Combination of CQ-amine and TPO Increases the Polymerization Shrinkage Stress and Does Not Improve the Depth of Cure of Bulk-fill Composites
The combination of camphorquinone with violet absorption alternative photoinitiators does not improve the depth of cure and, consequently, can increase the polymerization shrinkage stress of bulk-fill composites.
Bonding Performance of Universal Adhesive Systems Applied in Etch-and-Rinse and Self-Etch Strategies on Natural Dentin Caries
Universal adhesive systems containing phosphate/carboxylic functional methacrylate derivatives are an interesting alternative when bonding to caries-affected dentin.
A New Approach for Dental Bleaching Using Violet Light With or Without the Use of Whitening Gel: Study of Bleaching Effectiveness
Violet light produced clinically significant chromatic changes without the use of bleaching gel and potentiated the bleaching effect obtained with a gel containing 17.5% hydrogen peroxide (HP). However, the use of violet light with a gel containing 35% hydrogen peroxide did not affect the final result.
Effect of Conventional and Acid-modified Casein Phosphopeptide-Amorphous Calcium Phosphate Crèmes on Dentin Permeability Before and After Acid Challenge
In vitro application of CPP-ACP–containing crèmes for two weeks has a tendency to reduce dentin hypersensitivity by occluding dentinal tubules.
Bond Strength Stability of Self-adhesive Resin Cement to Etched Vitrified Yttria-stabilized Tetragonal Zirconia Polycrystal Ceramic After Thermomechanical Cycling
Hydrofluoric acid etching of yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystal (Y-TZP) ceramic surfaces vitrified with low-fusing glaze withstood thermomechanical cycling. This surface treatment is suitable for improving the bonding stability of resin cements to Y-TZP ceramics.
