Abstract

Polymerization shrinkage has serious deleterious effects on the clinical success of composite restorations. The purpose of this project was to develop a Finite Element Model to calculate transient stresses generated during the shrinkage of a self-cured Class-V dental composite. The results indicate that transitory events during the curing process may have an impact on clinical outcome.
