Update on Dental Materials for Restorative Dentistry



Nowadays, in restorative dentistry, resin-based composite is considered the gold standard material for direct or indirect reconstructions because of its high biocompatibility and aesthetics. However, common issues related to resin-based restorations, as polymerization shrinkage stress, gap formation, microleakage, and debonding, still represent a challenge for dental clinicians. In the last few years, to minimize the occurrence of these problems and ensure the physical and chemical properties of the restoration, the properties of resin-based material and their placement procedures have been significantly improved by the introduction of nanotechnologies, which optimize their performance. This presentation aims to describe the chemical and physical properties of these materials for both direct and indirect restoration by using a multidisciplinary approach.
