Title

Crystallization and fluorescence studies of lithium-disilicate glass-ceramics for dental restorations

Abstract

"The main goal of this project was to develop glass-ceramics with different colors and fluorescence properties similar to natural teeth. The addition of rare-earth oxides (like cerium oxide) and transitional metal oxides (like vanadium pentoxide or manganese dioxide) to the base composition of lithium disilicate glass helped provide the color and natural fluorescence of teeth. It was also important to understand the effect of these oxide additions on the ease or difficulty of glass formation to develop well-crystallized glass-ceramics"--Summary and Thesis Statement, leaf 13-14.
