Abstract

A hybrid composite resin, Prisma APH, and a microfilled composite resin, Silux Plus, were compared regarding diametral tensile strength values following conventional visible light polymerization and argon lasing. The time interval between resin polymerization and physical property testing ranged from 1 hour to 20 days. Results demonstrated considerable mean tensile strength value variation in the earlier phases of the study with a lessening of the differences between the tensile strengths achieved by each method of polymerization as the 20 day interval was approached. It was concluded that composite resin testing protocols should be lengthened to be able to fully assess the effects of the widely variant, time dependent mean test results.
