Sailer, I; Thoma, A; Khraisat, A; Jung, R E; Hämmerle, C H F (2010). Influence of white and gray endodontic posts on color changes of tooth roots, composite cores, and all-ceramic crowns. Quintessence International, 41(2):135-144.

Abstract

Objective: To evaluate whether post materials affect the color of roots, composite cores, and all-ceramic crowns. Method and Materials: Forty extracted human incisors were divided into four groups. White posts made of zirconia (Zi) or glass fiber (Gf) and gray posts made of titanium (Ti) or carbon fiber (Cf) were randomly assigned to the roots. Composite cores and glass-ceramic crowns were made. The color of the roots, cores, and crowns was captured (Spectroshade). The mean color difference (mDE) among the groups was calculated for the following comparisons: A—root: empty root versus post and core; B—root: post and core with and without cement; C—core: white versus gray posts and cores; D—lower third of crown versus original ceramic ingot; E—center of crown versus ingot. Statistical analysis was performed by ANOVA, Kruskal-Wallis, and Sheffé tests. Results: White, as well as gray posts, induced little changes of the root color (A, B). Gray posts led to a significant discoloration of the cores (C: mDEZi 2.0 ± 0.7, mDEGf 1.5 ± 0.6, mDETi 12.9 ± 5.9, mDECf 11.2 ± 5.3; P < .0001, Kruskal-Wallis) resulting in a grayish discoloration of the crowns’ lower thirds (D: mDEZi 5.7 ± 0.8, mDEGf 6.0 ± 1.2, mDETi 3.5 ± 1.1, mDECf 3.9 ± 0.9; P < .0001, Kruskal-Wallis). In the center of the crowns, all posts and cores induced a similar color difference (E). Conclusion: A grayish gingival shadowing cannot be reduced with white posts. In combination with glass-ceramic crowns, white posts and cores are esthetically beneficial. (Quintessence Int 2010;41:135–144)

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
