Share Abstract:

Strength of secondary-cured resin composite inlay repairs


Pages: 415-419
PMID: 9477907

A study was designed to simulate the repair of an indirect resin composite restoration with conventionally cured resin composite. Two-part specimens were prepared to test the diametral tensile strength of the repair interface between the base material of an indirectly cured resin composite (Herculite XRV) and repairs carried out with three directly cured materials (Herculite XRV, TPH, and Charisma). The repairs were carried out with and without use of the bonding resin for the repair material. The diametral tensile strengths of all repaired specimens were significantly less than those of bulk unrepaired specimens. There were no significant differences between the diametral tensile strengths of repaired blocks when the repair materials were used without bonding resin. The use of an intermediate layer of bonding resin significantly increased the bond strengths obtained when Herculite XRV and TPH were used for repair. There was no significant difference between the strength values of Herculite XRV and TPH, but Charisma exhibited the lowest strengths of repaired specimens.
