Abstract

Research indicates that microleakage is the major cause of composite restoration failure. Because the different physical properties of composite resin and tooth structure cause microleakage in composite tooth restorations, it is possible to eliminate microleakage by making composite's physical properties more similar to those of tooth structure. This article reviews the physical properties of composite resin systems last as they relate to tooth structure and microleakage.
