|Abstract:||New resin-based restorative materials have been developed, such as computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) and bulk-fill composites, as an alternative to traditional layering techniques. This study evaluated the biaxial flexural strength (BFS) before and after thermocycling of five different resin composites: one hybrid resin/ceramic CAD/CAM indirect material, Lava Ultimate CAD-CAM Restorative (LU, 3M Oral Care); a conventional composite, Filtek Z350 XT (Z350, 3M Oral Care); two bulk-fill composites, Tetric N-Ceram Bulk Fill (TBF, Ivoclar Vivadent) and Filtek Bulk Fill (FBF, 3M Oral Care); and one bulk-fill flow resin composite, Filtek Bulk Fill Flow (FBFF, 3M Oral Care). Three hundred disc-shaped specimens (6.5 mm in diameter and 0.5 mm thick) were fabricated and divided into five groups (n=30 for each composite and condition). The BFS test was performed in a universal testing machine at a crosshead speed of 0.5 mm/min immediately (i, 24 hours) and after thermocycling (a, 500 thermal cycles of 5 degrees C to 55 degrees C with a 30-second dwell time). The Weibull modulus (m) and characteristic stress (ii) were calculated, and a contour plot was used (m vs ii) to detect differences between groups (95% two-sided confidence intervals). Significantly higher characteristic stress was observed for LUi (286.6 MPa) and Z350i (248.8 MPa) compared to the bulk-fill groups (FBFi=187.9 MPa, FBFFi=175.9 MPa, TBFi=149.9 MPa), with no differences between LUi and Z350i. Thermocycling significantly decreased the characteristic stress of all groups with the highest values observed for LUa (186.7 MPa) and Z350a (188.9 MPa) and the lowest for FBFFa (90.3 MPa). Intermediate values were observed for FBFa (151.6 MPa) and TBFa (122.8 MPa). The Weibull modulus decreased only for FBFa compared to FBFi. Composition and thermocycling significantly influenced the biaxial flexural strength of resin composite materials.|
