Abstract

Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of indirect restorative material type and thickness on the transmission of different wavelengths from a broad-banded dental curing light. Methods: Four dental indirect restorative materials for computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) were evaluated: [RC] resin/ceramic hybrid material (Lava Ultimate), [FC] feldspathic ceramic (VitaBlocs), and two zirconia-based ceramics ([ZK] Katana; and [ZL] Lava). Total loss of irradiance (TL) was measured for blue (W B, 425–490 nm) and violet (W V, 350–425 nm) wavelengths. Specimens of 15 × 15 mm with varying thicknesses (0.5, 1.0, 1.5, and 2.0 mm) were fabricated (n = 5). A plasma-arc dental light-curing unit was used (Arc Light-II). To assess TL as a function of wavelength, a software (Spectra Suite v5.1) connected to a spectroradiometer (USB2000) and an integrating sphere (CTSM-LSM-60-SF) was used. Data was subjected to statistical analysis (two-way ANOVA and post-hoc Tukey test, α = 0.05). Results: A 0.5 mm interposition resulted in TL from 50.5 to 67.2%, depending on material. Increased thickness resulted in higher TL for all materials. FC showed less TL compared to ZK. In general, W V showed higher TL than did W B, and W V /W B proportion decreased with increasing thickness. Conclusions: Indirect materials significantly reduced TL, and this effect is greater with increasing thickness. W V showed lower penetration compared to W B .
