Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in dental materials as they play a crucial role in the development of effective dental treatments. The application of advanced materials, such as ceramics, polymers, and composites, has revolutionized dental practices and improved patient outcomes.

To further support the advancement of dental materials, this Special Issue welcomes submissions on various aspects related to the model design and application of dental materials. Models have become a widely used experimental method in dentistry, and new ideas are needed regarding the use of models for dental research. By exploring the properties and performance of models, and providing new designs, researchers can provide valuable insights into the development of innovative solutions for dental challenges.

We encourage scholars to take this opportunity to contribute to the discourse surrounding dental materials. This Special Issue provides a platform for researchers to share their expertise, engage in collaborative discussions, and ultimately expand the knowledge in this field.

Dr. Daniele Botticelli
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

This study aimed to evaluate the dimensional stability of maxillary diagnostic casts fabricated from a biobased model resin, which consists of 50% renewable raw materials for sustainable production, a model resin, and stone, over one month. A master maxillary stone cast was digitized with a laboratory scanner to generate a reference file. This master cast was also scanned with an intraoral scanner to additively manufacture casts with a biobased model resin (BAM) and a model resin (AM). Polyvinylsiloxane impressions of the master cast were also made and poured in type III stone (CV) (n = 8). The same laboratory scanner was used to digitize each model one day (T0), 1 week (T1), 2 weeks (T2), 3 weeks (T3), and 4 weeks (T4) after fabrication. Deviations from the reference file were calculated with an analysis software and analyzed with generalized linear model analysis (α = 0.05). The interaction between the material and the time point affected measured deviations (p < 0.001). Regardless of the time point, CV had the lowest and AM had the highest deviations (p < 0.001). BAM mostly had lower deviations at T0 and mostly had higher deviations at T4 (p ≤ 0.011). AM had the highest deviations at T4 and then at T3, whereas it had the lowest deviations at T0 (p ≤ 0.002). The measured deviations of CV increased after each time point (p < 0.001). BAM casts had deviations within the previously reported clinically acceptable thresholds over one month and had acceptable dimensional stability. Therefore, tested biobased resin may be a viable alternative for the sustainable manufacturing of maxillary diagnostic casts that are to be used clinically. Full article

Title: In vitro assessment of a new block design for implant crowns with functional gradiente fabricated with resin composite and zirconia insert
Author: Roig
Highlights: 1 Monolithic zirconia crowns and bi-layered designs are approved for dental crown use, even in high-stress molar regions. 2 The use of layered crown materials with functional gradient improves the damping effect. 3 Monolithic implant crowns made of ceramic-reinforced resin composite do not create damping effect. 4 The use of layered implant crowns prevents catastrophic prosthetic failures.
