Özet

Surface treatment procedures such as grinding and polishing are needed to provide the ceramic dental restorative materials with proper fitting and occlusion. The treated surfaces are customarily glazed to improve the strength and smoothness. Though smoothness and wetting of the dental surfaces are important to minimize bacteria] plaque retention, influence of the surface treatment and glazing procedures on the final surface roughness and its correlation to wettability are overlooked.
