Influence of dentin porcelain thickness on layered all-ceramic restoration color.
Summary of "Influence of dentin porcelain thickness on layered all-ceramic restoration color."
Final esthetic performance of all-ceramic restorations is influenced by the thickness ratio of core and porcelain ceramics. This study aimed to identify and quantify the effect of increased dentin porcelain thickness on the color and color coordinates of all-ceramic specimens.
Lava and IPS e.max Press all-ceramic systems were investigated. A1, A2 and A3.5 shades of layered specimens were made with 2-mm ceramic cores and 0-to-2mm beveled dentin porcelain. Color was measured at 0.05mm dentin porcelain thickness intervals with a spectroradiometer. The effect of ceramic brand, shade and dentin porcelain thickness on color change was analyzed by 3-way ANOVA.
Color changes of layered ceramics varied by ceramic brand, shade and dentin porcelain thickness. For most ceramics, CIE a* and b* values gradually increased as the thickness of the dentin porcelain increased. Conversely, such increases in dentin porcelain thickness were correlated with decreasing CIE L* values. When compared with the IPS e.max Press ceramics, Lava ceramics showed smaller color changes in response to increases in dentin porcelain thickness.
The final appearance of ceramic restorations can be manipulated by varying the dentin porcelain thickness; however, the color of the layered ceramics varied by ceramic brand, shade and dentin porcelain thickness.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A type of porcelain used in dental restorations, either jacket crowns or inlays, artificial teeth, or metal-ceramic crowns. It is essentially a mixture of particles of feldspar and quartz, the feldspar melting first and providing a glass matrix for the quartz. Dental porcelain is produced by mixing ceramic powder (a mixture of quartz, kaolin, pigments, opacifiers, a suitable flux, and other substances) with distilled water. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992)
A form of phototherapy using color to influence health and to treat various physical or mental disorders. The color rays may be in the visible or invisible spectrum and can be administered through colored lights or applied mentally through suggestion.
Cements that act through infiltration and polymerization within the dentinal matrix and are used for dental restoration. They can be adhesive resins themselves, adhesion-promoting monomers, or polymerization initiators that act in concert with other agents to form a dentin-bonding system.
The fusion of ceramics (porcelain) to an alloy of two or more metals for use in restorative and prosthodontic dentistry. Examples of metal alloys employed include cobalt-chromium, gold-palladium, gold-platinum-palladium, and nickel-based alloys.
Adherent debris produced when cutting the enamel or dentin in cavity preparation. It is about 1 micron thick and its composition reflects the underlying dentin, although different quantities and qualities of smear layer can be produced by the various instrumentation techniques. Its function is presumed to be protective, as it lowers dentin permeability. However, it masks the underlying dentin and interferes with attempts to bond dental material to the dentin.
