Synthesis of wrinkled mesoporous silica and its reinforcing effect for dental resin composites

Dental resin-based composites have been widely used as hard tissue substitutes to restore dental caries and other defects since the early 1960s, thanks to their superior aesthetics and biocompatibility over dental amalgams [1 –4]. These composites are primarily comprised of inorganic filler particles dispersed in a resin matrix which can be polymerized under a blue light irradiation. Despite recent advances in the optimization of monomer structures and filler compositions, the fracture of resin composite restorations i s still one of the main causes for failure in clinical applications, which prevents their applications in high-load and large area restorations [5–8].
