Hard machining, glaze firing and hydrofluoric acid etching: Do these procedures affect the flexural strength of a leucite glass–ceramic?

Nov 23, 2017 by in Dental Materials Comments Off on Hard machining, glaze firing and hydrofluoric acid etching: Do these procedures affect the flexural strength of a leucite glass–ceramic?

Highlights • Hard machining reduced around 27% the leucite glass–ceramic strength. • Glaze firing is able to reduce the leucite glass–ceramic strength. • Glaze firing can change the ceramic microstructure…

Influence of phosphoproteins’ biomimetic analogs on remineralization of mineral-depleted resin–dentin interfaces created with ion-releasing resin-based systems

Nov 23, 2017 by in Dental Materials Comments Off on Influence of phosphoproteins’ biomimetic analogs on remineralization of mineral-depleted resin–dentin interfaces created with ion-releasing resin-based systems

Graphical abstract Highlights • The ion-releasing resin induces mineral precipitation at the resin–dentine–dentin interface. • Biomimetic analogues phosphorylate acid-etched dentin and remineralize the hybrid layer. • Remineralization through biomimetic primers…
