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.

    • "Feldspathic porcelain gives great aesthetic value and demonstrates high translucency just like natural dentition [25]. Using feldspathic porcelain to fabricate ceramic laminate veneer will provide the following advantages: 1) reproducibility of tooth color with a thin layer of material, 2) low laboratory cost compared to other ceramic systems , 3) excellent mechanical retentive characteristics after etching with hydrofluoric acid and the presence of adequate amount of enamel, 4) excellent bonding characteristics with the use of appropriate silane bonding agents [26]. When compared with feldspathic porcelain other glass ceramics have improved mechanical fracture resistance, improved thermal shock resistance, and resistance to corrosion. "

    ABSTRACT: Porcelain laminate veneers have been a common treatment strategy in dental clinics. It is a conservative method for treatment of esthetic and functional problems in anterior region of oral cavity. Wide range of dental ceramics is now available on market for fabrication of laminate veneers. Clinician should have enough knowledge regarding the composition and properties of these materials in order to be able to choose the appropriate one according to clinical situations.

    • "For this aim, the CIE L*a*b system of colors was created,19 eliminating inconsistencies inherent in color perception and specification among observers.8 This type of evaluation becomes important as the investment/ceramic relationship constitutes the base of the process of manufacturing ceramic restorations and is directly related to the final aesthetic quality of this type of restoration.7,15 "

    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: In the area of scientific visualization, input data sets are often very large. In visualization of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in particular, input data sets today can surpass 100 Gbytes, and are expected to scale with the ability of supercomputers to generate them. Some visualization tools already partition large data sets into segments, and load appropriate segments as they are needed. However, this does not remove the problem for two reasons: 1) there are data sets for which even the individual segments are too large for the largest graphics workstations, 2) many practitioners do not have access to workstations with the memory capacity required to load even a segment, especially since the state-of-the-art visualization tools tend to be developed by researchers with much more powerful machines. When the size of the data that must be accessed is larger than the size of memory, some form of virtual memory is simply required. This may be by segmentation, paging, or by paged segments. The authors demonstrate that complete reliance on operating system virtual memory for out-of-core visualization leads to egregious performance. They then describe a paged segment system that they have implemented, and explore the principles of memory management that can be employed by the application for out-of-core visualization. They show that application control over some of these can significantly improve performance. They show that sparse traversal can be exploited by loading only those data actually required.
