Titanium Corrosion: Implications For Dental Implants

Abstract

ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of different levels of opacity of the lithium disilicate framework upon polymerization of dual-cured resin cement. Four ceramic discs were used, one for each opacity framework covered by their respective ceramic veneering, and a cement group without a ceramic cover. The degree of conversion for each resin cement was estimated using the Knoop microhardness test. The group with the highest opacity showed the lowest hardness score at baseline. The study concluded that the opacity level of lithium disilicate framework could influence the degree of polymerization of a dual-cured resin cement.
