Abstract Objective A deeper understanding of the mechanical behavior of dental restorative materials requires an insight into the materials elastic constants and microstructure. Here we aim to use complementary methodologies to thoroughly characterize chairside CAD/CAM materials and discuss the benefits and limitations of different analytical strategies. Methods Eight commercial CAM/CAM materials, ranging from polycrystalline zirconia (e.max ZirCAD, Ivoclar-Vivadent), reinforced glasses (Vitablocs Mark II, VITA; Empress CAD, Ivoclar-Vivadent) and glass-ceramics (e.max CAD, Ivoclar-Vivadent; Suprinity, VITA; Celtra Duo, Dentsply) to hybrid materials (Enamic, VITA; Lava Ultimate, 3M ESPE) have been selected. Elastic constants were evaluated using three methods: Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy (RUS), Resonant Beam Technique (RBT) and Ultrasonic Pulse-Echo (PE). The microstructures were characterized using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDX), Raman Spectroscopy and X-ray Diffraction (XRD). Results Young’s modulus (E), Shear modulus (G), Bulk modulus (B) and Poisson’s ratio ( ν ) were obtained for each material. E and ν reached values ranging from 10.9 (Lava Ultimate) to 201.4 (e.max ZirCAD) and 0.173 (Empress CAD) to 0.47 (Lava Ultimate), respectively. RUS showed to be the most complex and reliable method, while the PE method the easiest to perform but most unreliable. All dynamic methods have shown limitations in measuring the elastic constants of materials showing high damping behavior (hybrid materials). SEM images, Raman spectra and XRD patterns were made available for each material, showing to be complementary tools in the characterization of their crystal phases. Significance Here different methodologies are compared for the measurement of elastic constants and microstructural characterization of CAD/CAM restorative materials. The elastic properties and crystal phases of eight materials are herein fully characterized.

A method for fracture toughness measurement of ceramics using small disks and plates is presented. Similar to the surface-crack-in-flexure (SCF) method a semielliptical surface crack is introduced centrally into one plane side of the specimen which is fractured in a ball-on-three-balls test. Finite element simulations are used to evaluate the stress intensity factor (SIF) for this loading geometry for a range of crack sizes and crack geometries. Empirical formulae for the geometric function are ...

Abstract In this work, transformation of crystalline phases and development of microstructure of two kinds of glass-ceramics, SiO 2 –Li 2 O–P 2 O 5 and SiO 2 –Li 2 O–K 2 O–Al 2 O 3 –ZrO 2 –P 2 O 5 , have been studied by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy analysis. In the former glass, a small amount of spherical Li 2 Si 2 O 5 crystals precipitated at the usual nucleation temperature, which changed little in size and packing density with the increase of the temperature. These sphe...

Abstract A new fracture toughness test for discs and plates is presented, which can be applied to small specimens (>5 mm diameter). A semi-elliptical surface crack is made into the centre of the top plane using a Knoop intender. Then the layer containing the plastically deformed zone is ground off and the crack is loaded in tension using the Ball-on-3-Balls test. Applied to five different ceramic materials the results gained with the new method agree well with those of standardised methods.

In this study, the high-temperature phase transformation of a multicomponent lithium disilicate glass was investigated by in situ and real-time synchrotron X-ray diffraction in the SiO2–Li2O–P2O5–Al2O3–ZrO2 glass system. Quantitative phase analysis via the Rietveld method was performed on the high-resolution data aiming to reveal the crystallization sequence, crystallization kinetics, and the role of P2O5 on nucleation. It is found that the nucleation of lithium metasilicate (LS) and lithium dis...

Abstract Objectives To determine and identify correlations between flexural strength, strain at failure, elastic modulus and hardness versus ceramic network densities of a range of novel polymer-infiltrated-ceramic-network (PICN) materials. Methods Four ceramic network densities ranging from 59% to 72% of theoretical density, resin infiltrated PICN as well as pure polymer and dense ceramic cross-sections were subjected to Vickers Indentations (HV 5) for hardness evaluation. The flexural strength...

Abstract Resonant ultrasound spectroscopy (RUS) allows to accurately characterize the complete set of elastic constants of an anisotropic material from a set of measured mechanical resonant frequencies of a specimen. This method does not suffer from the drawbacks and limitations of the conventional sound velocity approach, but has been reported to fail to measure bone because of its strong viscoelastic damping. In this study, we take advantage of recent developments of RUS to overcome this limit...

Abstract The Newman and Raju formula for the stress intensity factor of a semi-elliptical surface crack loaded in uniaxial tension or in bending has been developed about 30 years ago using an FE-analysis for several geometric parameters and fitting an empirical equation to the data points. The Poisson's ratio analyzed was 0.3. In this paper a reassessment of the Newman and Raju formula is made, where all relevant geometric parameters of crack and specimen and the Poisson's ratio are considered. ...

Poisson's ratio describes the resistance of a material to distort under mechanical load rather than to alter in volume. On the bicentenary of the publication of Poisson's Traite de Mecanique, the continuing relevance of Poisson's ratio in the understanding of modern materials is reviewed.

Abstract The microstructural development during crystallization firing of a commercially-available dental-grade nanostructured lithia-zirconia glass-ceramic (Vita Suprinity® PC) was unraveled using a wide battery of ex-situ and in-situ characterization techniques. It was found that the milling blocks are slightly crystallized glass-ceramics, with a complex chemical composition and consisting of partially de-polymerized glass plus Li2SiO3 nanocrystals. It was also found that during crystallizatio...

Abstract null null The relationship between fracture toughness and Yttria content in modern zirconia ceramics was revised. For that purpose, we evaluated here 10 modern Y2O3-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) materials currently used in biomedical applications, namely prosthetic and implant dentistry. The most relevant range between 2-5 mol% Y2O3 was addressed by selecting from conventional opaque 3 mol% YSZ up to more translucent compositions (4-5 mol% YSZs). A technical 2YSZ was used to extend the rang...

Abstract null null The fatigue behavior and survival rates of different ceramic materials cemented over different substrates for implant-supported crowns were evaluated in this study.
