Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to the development of dental materials and the esthetic requirements of patients, conservative restoration and esthetic dentistry is becoming more and more important. It would be good to create a platform for all researchers and clinicians to share their experiences and studies in the field of “Restorative and Esthetic Dentistry”. For promoting the development of this field and help readers to have more communication, Dentistry Journal provides this Special Issue about “Restorative and Esthetic Dentistry”. In this field, all studies about restorative and esthetic dentistry are welcomed, including clinical cases report and studies of dental materials.

All research about restorative and esthetic dentistry, including basic studies and clinical studies, are considered in this Special Issue. All studies about restorative and esthetic dentistry, including veneer, tooth colored inlay/onlay, bleaching, full ceramic crown, oral rehabilitation of vertical dimension loss, direct and indirect composite resin restoration, dentin bonding agents, resin cement, zirconia implant, vital pulp therapy, biodentine, mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), resin adhesive bridge, Maryland bridge, gingival esthetics, digital impression, laser cavity preparation, fiber post, and conservative restoration, are very welcomed.

The aim of this study was to test the effect of adding chicken eggshell powder (CESP) to conventional glass-ionomer cement (GIC) on its mechanical properties, and fluoride and calcium release. CESP was added with proportions of 3% and 5% by weight to the powder component of conventional glass-ionomer cement. The specimens were categorized into group A: GIC without CESP; group B: GIC with 3% wt. CESP; and group C: GIC with 5% wt. CESP; there were 12 specimens in each group. Groups B and C showed higher compressive strength values compared to group A. However, microhardness scores were higher in group C compared to groups A and B. As for ion-release results, group B displayed the highest values of fluoride release followed by group C at both 7 and 30 days. Group C showed the highest amount of calcium release followed by both groups B and C at 7 days, while at 30 days, groups A and B showed higher calcium release compared to group C. The mechanical properties of conventional glass-ionomer restorative material were enhanced by the addition of CESP. Moreover, fluoride and calcium release were not compromised by adding CESP.

Open AccessArticle Female Facial Attractiveness Assessed from Three-Dimensional Contour Lines by University Students

Background: Three-dimensional (3D) images could provide more accurate evaluation for facial attractiveness than two-dimensional (2D) images. The 3D facial image could be simplified into gray scale 3D contour lines. Whether female facial attractiveness could be perceived in these simplified 3D facial contour lines should be determined. Methods: A series of 100 2D photographs (one frontal and two lateral views) and 3D contour lines extracted from 3D facial images of females were projected onto a screen. Each image presentation lasted 5 s, and the evaluators marked their impression of each image’s facial attractiveness on a five-point Likert scale within 3 s of its presentation. The evaluation of the 3D contour lines was performed twice, 2 weeks apart. The evaluators were university students. Results: High consistency (r = 0.92) was found for the first and second evaluation of 3D facial contour lines for female facial attractiveness. The judgments of unattractive face were more consistent than the judgments of attractive face. Male students tended to give lower scores than female students in the evaluation of female facial attractiveness. Conclusions: Female facial attractiveness could be evaluated by 3D facial contour lines. 3D facial contour lines should be one of the key factors of facial attractiveness. Full article
