Design and evaluation of alumina/feldspar resin infiltrated dental composite materials
Introduction: Incorporating a feldspar chemical bond between alumina filler particles is expected to increase the wear resistant and flexural strength properties, while reducing flexibility of dental composites. Aims and ...
Flexibility of experimental alumina/feldspar and SR ADORO dental composites
(South African Dental Association, 2010)
Introduction: Flexure of a dental composite can be detrimental to the success of a restoration. Flexibility considerations are thus important when comparing dental materials to optimize the success of resin restorations. Aims ...
Reducing the alloy thickness of base metal ceramic restorations
(Dental Technicians Association of South Africa, 2009)
Reduction in base metal alloy thickness will permit additional porcelain depth and improved aesthetics but unfortunately little information exists regarding the thickness to which base metal alloys may be reduced in ...
Wear and flexural strength comparisons of alumina/feldspar resin infiltrated dental composites
(South African Dental Association, 2008)
Introduction: Incorporating a feldspar chemical bond between alumina filler particles is expected to increase the wear-resistant and flexural strength properties. Aims and Objectives: An investigation was carried ...
Dental composite materials: highlighting the problem of wear for posterior restorations
(South African Dental Association, 2007)
Manufacturers of dental composites promote their products as having ideal wear resistant characteristics. Evaluation of the problems that persist with wear of dental composites is made. Recommendations for further research ...
The performance of base metal ceramic alloy restorations with reference to variances in thickness in metal and porcelain in order to establish optimal thickness ratios to maxize strength and aesthetic characteristics
The greatest problem in maximizing strength and aesthetic characteristics of metal ceramic restorations arises when there is a lack of available space to allow sufficient thickness of metal alloy and porcelain. This ...
