The evolution of resin composites for direct restorations

Apr 16, 2019Bonding systems have developed as well, making composite restorations last longer than their predecessors and challenging amalgam's claim on being the longer-lasting restoration. The dental industry and materials science have made many advances over the last 70 years. With the 2020s beginning next year, one can only wonder, what will they think of next? References. 1.

Composite restorations — fast, easy, and effective

This article will discuss the use of composites with the advances in technology — without sacing durability or longevity — in a conservative approach to tooth restoration. History There has been an evolution the past 45 years in the development of dental bonding systems with variations in chemistry, application, mechanism, techniques, and effectiveness.

How to differentiate composite restoration from natural

Hey hi, i'm a dental student, freshman. Just had my first ED session today and i got to check my partner's oral cavity. Just wondering how do i differentiate composite restoration from natural tooth structure, my lecturer told me that the texture when you scratch it with probe differs, but i dont really get it.

A History of Dental Ceramics

A History of Dental Ceramics Gregg Helvey, DDS. Ceramics play an integral role in dentistry. Their use in dentistry dates as far back as 1889 when Charles H. Land patented the all-porcelain "jacket" crown. 1 This new type of ceramic crown was introduced in 1900s. The procedure consisted of rebuilding the missing tooth with a porcelain covering, or "jacket" as Land called it.

Dental Composite Restoration

Dental composites are a combination of materials that are used in dental restoration to improve the aesthetics of a person's smile and to fill cavities. Today's composite materials are strong and are used much more widely – even on chewing surfaces – providing a more attractive, natural-looking alternative to dental fillings for a better smile.

Advances in Direct Composite Restorations

Unlike dental amalgam, the placement of composite requires many more steps and exacting technique to achieve the best results. The process of adhesion, conditioning the tooth surface, application of primers and adhesives, followed by the layering of composite resins to complete the restorative process, involves many independent steps that must be properly executed to ensure good results.

Golden Rules for Successful Composite Resin Restorations

The success of a composite restoration depends on 3 main factors: the selection of a good quality composite; proper use of an appropriate bonding system; and use of a light-curing system that is capable of delivering enough energy to properly complete the polymerization process.

Dental restoration

A dental restoration or dental filling is a treatment to restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure resulting from caries or external trauma as well as to the replacement of such structure supported by dental implants. They are of two broad types—direct and indirect—and are further classified by location and size.

Dental Composite Materials for Direct Restorations

The potential biological issues of dental composites are reviewed in chapters on elution of leachable substances and cariogenicity of resin monomers. Clinical sections focus on material placement, finishing procedures, and the esthetics and clinical longevity of composite restorations. Bonding to tooth tissues is addressed in a separate chapter, as is the efficiency of various composite repair methods. The final

Dental compomer

Dental compomers are materials which are used in dentistry as restorative material. They were introduced in the early 1990s as a hybrid of two other dental materials: dental composites and glass ionomer cement. They are also known as polyacid-modified resin composites.

Composite Restoration

Resin-based composite restorations exhibit many advantages compared with "traditional" dental amalgam fillings; for example, superior aesthetics and conservation of the remaining tooth structure. On the other hand, resin composite restoration is still suffering from some drawbacks; including discoloration, lack of sufficient scientific evidence of durability, technique sensitivity, as well as polymerization shrinkage.

Two studies reported that bonding of dental restorative composite materials to dentine and enamel can be adversely affected by DUWL treatment agents containing chlorhexidine gluconate combined with 12% ethyl alcohol, citric acid and sodium hypochlorite (Roberts et al., 2000; Taylor-Hardy et al., 2001).

Dental Composite

Dental composites, or resin-based composites, are synthetic materials that combine polymeric matrix with a dispersion of glass, mineral, or resin filler particles and/or short fibers by coupling agents. Just like dental amalgam, they are used to restore tooth structure lost through trauma, caries, or other diseases.

Composite Fillings

Composites cost more than amalgam and occasionally are not covered by some insurance plans. Also, no dental filling lasts forever. Some studies show that composite fillings can be less durable and need to be replaced more often than amalgam fillings. It generally takes longer to place a composite filling than it does for a metal filling.
