Amalgam substitutes: a critical analysis

Lutz, Felix
Published in Journal of esthetic dentistry. 2000, vol. 12, no. 3, p. 146-59
Abstract Quality standards for restorations recently have been defined in Switzerland. Amalgam substitutes must meet restoration Grade 2 requirements (i.e., pulp and dental hard substance must be preserved, and both form and function of the tooth have to be reconstituted). The pertinent operative technique has to be simple and amalgam-like. A minimum service life of 8 years is required. This in vitro study investigated the clinical potential of several amalgam substitutes, taking into account the operative requirements, the defined restorative guidelines, and the required service life.
