Selected mechanical and physical properties and clinical application of a new low-shrinkage composite restoration
Duarte, Sillas / Botta, Ana Carolina / Phark, Jin-Ho / Sadan, Avishai
Polymerization shrinkage is a major concern for bonded direct posterior restorations. Recently, a new low-shrinkage composite resin restorative material was developed. However, few data are available regarding clinical manipulation of this composite. Siloranebased composites represent an alternative to conventional methacrylate-based composites for direct posterior restorations. This article critically discusses the latest peer-reviewed reports related to polymerization, bonding, polishing, and color stability of silorane composite, focusing on its clinical application. Initial evaluation of this new category of composite material shows acceptable mechanical and physical properties.
