OBJECTIVES: This study compared the fracture strength of direct and indirect resin composite laminate veneers and evaluated the effect of a bidirectional E-glass woven fiber application at different locations at the cementation interface. METHODS: Standard preparations on canines (N=50, 10 per group) were made using a depth cutting bur (0.7mm depth) designed for laminate veneer restorations. Forty indirect laminates using a highly filled polymeric material (Estenia) and 10 direct laminates (Quadrant Anterior Shine) were prepared according to the manufacturer's instructions. Bidirectional E-glass woven-fiber sheet (0.06mm) (Everstick) was applied at different locations at the cementation interface. The control group received no fibers. The specimens were stored in water at 37 degrees C for 1 month prior to fracture testing performed in a universal testing machine where the load was applied from the incisal direction at 137 degrees (1mm/min). RESULTS: No significant differences were found between the five groups (P>0.01) (one-way ANOVA). While indirect laminate veneers showed mean fracture strength of 247+/-47N, direct laminate veneers revealed 239+/-104N. The use of E-glass fibers at the cementation interface at different locations did not increase the fracture strength significantly (286-313N) (P>0.01). Failure analysis showed mainly cohesive fracture of the veneer restoration (20/50) and adhesive failure between the cementation interface and the laminate with fiber exposure (19/50) covering more than half of the restorations. SIGNIFICANCE: Direct and indirect resin composite laminate veneers showed comparable mean fracture strengths. The use of E-glass woven-fiber sheet at the cementation interface did not increase the fracture strength of the polymeric laminate veneers.
