Ceramic Laminate Veneers: Influence of Different Types of Resin Luting Agents on Color Stability

VeneersDear All,

let’s synthesise together the results of this paper, even if some of these results might first appear to contradict each other. Even if the results of the study are seen as valid, there might be a discussion of how useful the results are and if these results might lead to new research or to new applications.

This will be an education strategy that will make All of Us become more familiar with the advanced literature in their new field of study. Moreover we will test our ability to act as scientific reviwers

In addition, this journal club will help improve our skills of understanding and debating current topics of active interest in their field.

  1. Why molars? Ground flat, dentin structure could be different then if prepared on anterior teeth.
    n=130 reduced to 80 after examination.
    Surfaces were polished,
    then 40 teeth were abraded to dentin, and 40 to enamel? how do you get even surfaces when cusps are still present?

    “Self-etch eliminates the need for any previous treatment before cementation”???? I presume they mean the tooth structure and not the veneers.

    I have trouble with the substrate treatment as described. (table 1).

    What were the changes in the controls?

    in discussion: “When the conventional dual and light cured cements were used, the dental substrate for cementation was enamel, and when the self-adhesive cement was used, the dental substrate was dentin, due to better indication of Rely-X Unicem cement.” What does that mean?

  2. John. what is you favourite protocol for luting in order to have colour stability?

  3. Frankly, I hadn’t considered the color stability issue until looking at this. As a clinician, you expect what the manufacturers tell you to be valid. In practice, I have not seen great changes in color on the vast majority of the restorations (veneers) I have placed. But I will now be more aware. I just don’t fully fathom the experimental design.
