MetadataShow full item record
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 involving wear resistance of dental composite materials are provided. This article provides a review of English, peer-reviewed literature involving wear resistance of dental composite materials conducted through ScienceDirect and hand searched data bases between 1994 and 2006.
