Effect of finish line design and metal alloy on the marginal and internal gaps of selective laser melting printed copingsSelective laser melting (SLM) technology has been introduced for printing metal dental restorations from Co-Cr base alloys or Au-Pt high noble alloys. However, information regarding the fit of restorations fabricated by using this technique is limited.
Effect of airborne-particle abrasion on 3-dimensional surface roughness and characteristic failure load of fiber-reinforced postsDebonding is the most common complication of fiber-reinforced posts (FRPs). Airborne-particle abrasion (APA) has been suggested to increase resin cement adhesion to the surface of FRPs. However, which abrasion protocol is the most favorable is unclear.
Edge chipping resistance and flexural strength of polymer infiltrated ceramic network and resin nanoceramic restorative materialsTwo novel restorative materials, a polymer infiltrated ceramic network (PICN) and a resin nanoceramic (RNC), for computer-assisted design and computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD-CAM) applications have recently become commercially available. Little independent evidence regarding their mechanical properties exists to facilitate material selection.
