Influence of Different Luting Systems on Microleakage of CAD/CAM Composite Crowns: A Pilot Study
Schlenz, Maximiliane Amelie / Skroch, Marianne / Schmidt, Alexander / Rehmann, Peter / Wöstmann, Bernd
Purpose: To investigate whether (1) the curing mode and (2) the use of the corresponding or noncorresponding crown luting system have an impact on the microleakage of computer-aided design/ computer-assisted manufacture (CAD/CAM) composite crowns after chewing simulation.
Materials and Methods: Two CAD/CAM composite blocks (Lava Ultimate [n = 20] and LuxaCam Composite [n = 20]) and their luting systems and curing modes (light curing [LC] or chemical curing [CC]) were investigated. A dye penetration test was used to detect the presence of microleakage.
Results: Independently of the luting system, the LC groups showed a significantly lower microleakage compared to the CC groups (P < .05). Furthermore, the CC groups exhibited a reduction of microleakage if the CAD/CAM block and luting system were from the same manufacturer.
Conclusion: For the CC mode, the corresponding block and luting system should be used.
