Abstract

This study compared the moduli of elasticity of three provisional crown and fixed partial denture resins. Eighteen specimens of each resin were reinforced with carbon graphite fibers and 18 resin specimens from each group contained no fibers. Six specimens of each resin, with and without fibers, were tested within 6 hours of fabrication, after 30 days, and after 60 days of water storage. The mean moduli of elasticity of all the resins increased significantly with fiber incorporation. Water storage did not have a significant effect on the moduli of elasticity of the resins tested.
