Using artificial intelligence to predict the final color of leucite-reinforced ceramic restorations

Journal of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry

Carlos Kose Jr., et. al


The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of machine learning regression models in predicting the final color of leucite-reinforced glass CAD/CAM ceramic veneer restorations based on substrate shade, ceramic shade, thickness and translucency. Leucite-reinforced glass ceramics in four different shades were sectioned in thicknesses of 0.3, 0.5, 0.7, and 1.2 mm.

Microshear bond strength of resin cement to glass-ceramics after intaglio surface staining

Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry

Lucas F, Tabata, et. al


Applying stains to the intaglio surface of computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) monolithic ceramic restorations has been proposed as an option to help mask darkened substrates. However, little is known about the effects of this procedure on the adhesion between the resin cement and the ceramic. The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the effect of intaglio surface staining on the microshear bond strength between 2 CAD-CAM ceramics and a resin cement.

Progression of non-carious cervical lesions: 3D morphological analysis

Clinical Oral Investigations

Meiken Hayashi, et. al


This longitudinal study aimed to investigate morphologically and quantitatively the progression of non-carious cervical lesions (NCCLs) using a confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM) and replica models. The samples examined comprised sets of replicas annually obtained from 83 lesions in 16 participants over 3 to 5 years. All lesions were visually categorized as wedge-shaped, saucer-shaped, or mixed-shaped lesions.
