On the surface hardness of a dental resin composite material Decky J. Indrani, Triaminingsih S, Nurvanita, Andhesti, Noviana Department of Dental Materials Science Faculty of Dentistry Universitas Indonesia ABSTRACT Previous study has shown that dental resins exhibited changes in the surface hardness when soaked in alcoholic beverages. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the change of the surface micro-hardness of different restorative CAD/CAM materials after exposure to a carbonated acidic drink (Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola Company, Milan, Italy). Brinell Hardness Test. The tip has a characteristic shape made of a very hard material, such as steel or diamond, as shown in Figure 3.3 . Sufficient hardness ensures that the placed restorations are resistant to in-service scratching, from both mastication and abrasion. 10% decrease in Barcol hardness of a resin composite results in a 20% decrease in the flexural strength. immersed in cola for 30 days had the lowest surface hardness (33.20), whereas rough specimens of hybrid composite material immersed in cola for 24 hours had the highest surface hardness (156.00). Hardness is a property that is measured by scientific instruments that press a special tip into the surface of the test material. Reports have stated that the alcohol in mouthrinses may soften the resin-composite restorations [6]. Oldest test employed for determining the hardness of metals; A hardened steel ball is pressed under a specified load into the polished surface of a material. 2.3.2. Chai J(1), Tan E, Pang IC. Several studies have tested the effect of bleaching agents on the properties of dental materials. However, both alcohol-containing and alcohol-free mouthrinses could affect the hardness of restorative materials … 1. CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) for indirect restorative materials has been recently introduced in dentistry. The Barcol hardness of the top surface is compared with that of the bottom surface. The cold temperatures did not produce changes in the surface roughness or microhardness of the three restorative dental materials selected. Materials and methods: Hundred specimens were prepared from five types of composite resin material in a Teflon mold. In both tea and coffee, the top surfaces tended to be Author information: (1)Advanced Education Prosthodontics, Northwestern University Dental School, Chicago, IL 60611, USA. materials was used following the ASTM-G-53 standards1. In terms of microhardness, the results from those studies are contradictory.6–12 Studies reported an increase,7 decrease9 or no change6,8,10–11 in composite surface hardness A study of the surface hardness and dimensional stability of several intermaxillary registration materials. The success or failure of a given material may be as dependent on its properties in the liquid state as it is on its properties as a solid. Hardness is an important mechanical property of dental materials and is defined as the resistance to permanent surface indentation. their effect on the surface properties of aesthetic dental restorative materials is controversial [5].
