ABSTRACT This clinical report describes the fabrication and bonding of porcelain laminate veneer restorations in a patient with anterior open spaces. Laminate veneer restorations made of feldspathic porcelain were etched with 5% hydrofluoric acid, rinsed under tap water, ultrasonically cleaned with methanol, and primed with a chemically activated three-liquid silane bonding agent (Clearfil Porcelain Bond). The enamel surfaces were etched with 40% phosphoric acid, rinsed with water, and primed with a two-liquid bonding agent (Clearfil New Bond) that contained a hydrophobic phosphate (10-methacryloyloxydecyl dihydrogen phosphate; MDP). The restorations were bonded with a dual-activated luting composite (Clapearl DC). The veneers have been functioning satisfactorily for an observation period of one year. Combined use of the Clearfil bonding agents and Clapearl DC luting composite is an alternative to conventional materials for seating porcelain laminate veneer restorations, although the system is inapplicable to dentin bonding.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of investment type on the color of feldspathic ceramics. Ceramic specimens were constructed using the refractory die technique, using four investments (i.e., Vitadurvest, Duravest, Duceralay Superfit, and Fortune) to observe their effect on the color of five commercially available ceramics (i.e., Super Porcelain EX-3, Vision Esthetic, Vintage Halo, IPS Classic, and Vitadur Alpha). The color analysis of the ceramics was performed with a colorimeter using the CIE L*a*b* color coordinates. The investments produced significant alterations on a*, b*, and L* color parameters of the ceramics tested. The ceramic Vision Esthetic was influenced by the type of investment in all color parameters (P<.05). Two investments (Duravest and Fortune) produced alterations in color parameters with three of the five ceramics tested. The investment materials produced alterations on the ceramic color parameters, resulting in unacceptable chromatic alterations (ΔE*).

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to assess the surface microhardness (SMH) of intracoronal dentin exposed to 38% hydrogen peroxide (HP) light-activated or not and to 2% sodium fluoride gel (F2%) or 5% varnish (F5%). Intracoronal dentin specimens were exposed to bleaching (B), bleaching and light activation (BL), or no bleaching (NB), followed by F2%, F5%, or no exposure (NF). SMH test was performed. Four specimens of each group were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Analysis of variance and Tukey test (α = 5%) showed higher SMH of NB than BL or B. Specimens exposed to F5% presented the highest SMH and differed from F2% and NF. BL + NF yielded inferior SMH and was similar to B + NF, BL + F2%, B + F2%, BL + F5%, and NB + NF. NB + F5% showed superior values and did not differ from NB + F2%, B + F5%, and NB + NF. Bleaching with 38% HP, light-activated or not, reduced the SMH of intracoronal dentin. F5% provided SMH to the level of unbleached specimens.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to assess the fracture resistance of endodontically treated teeth submitted to bleaching with 38% hydrogen peroxide activated by light-emitting diode (LED)-laser system. Fifty maxillary incisors were endodontically treated, received a zinc phosphate barrier and were embedded in acrylic resin until cemento-enamel junction. The specimens were distributed into five groups (n=10) according to the number of bleaching sessions: GI, no treatment (control); GII, one session; GIII, two sessions; GIV, three sessions and GV, four sessions. The whitening gel was applied to the buccal surface of the tooth and inside the pulp chamber for three times in each session, followed by LED-laser activation. Specimens were submitted to the fracture resistance test (kN) and data were submitted to the Tukey-Kramer multiple comparisons test. No significant difference (p>0.05) was found between GI (0.71+/-0.30) and GII (0.65+/-0.13), which presented the highest strength values to fracture. Groups III (0.35+/-0.17), IV (0.23+/-0.13) and V (0.38+/-0.15) showed lower resistance to fracture (p<0.01) when compared to GI and GII. The fracture resistance of endodontically treated teeth decreased after two sessions of bleaching with 38% hydrogen peroxide activated by LED-laser system.
