Rights and Permissions

Direct resin composites have a greater degree of conversion, physical properties, color, and resistance to abrasion when heat treated. So, it is best suited for indirect use as heat-treated direct resin using oven, autoclave or porcelain furnace, or microwave. We have chosen direct resin composite as a suitable material and heat-treated it for endo crown fabrication or aesthetic indirect restoration. The reason for such technique is supported by various research studies, and case reports available have shown positive results, and it is also considered as a biomimetic method.
