resin

 [rez´in]
1. a solid or semisolid organic substance exuded by plants or by insects feeding on plants, or produced synthetically; they are insoluble in water but mostly soluble in alcohol or ether. adj., adj res´inous.
2. a compound made by condensation or polymerization of low-molecular-weight organic compounds.
acrylic r's products of the polymerization of acrylic or methacrylic acid or their derivatives, used in fabrication of medical prostheses and dental restorations and appliances.
anion exchange resin see ion-exchange resin.
cation exchange resin see ion-exchange resin.
cholestyramine resin a synthetic, strongly basic anion exchange resin in the chloride form which chelates bile salts in the intestine, thus preventing their reabsorption; used as an adjunctive therapy to diet in management of certain hypercholesterolemias and in the symptomatic relief of pruritus associated with bile stasis.
composite resin a synthetic resin, usually acrylic based, to which a high percentage of ceramic reinforcing filler has been added, such as particles of glass or silica coated with a coupling agent to bind them to the matrix; used chiefly in dental restorations. Called also composite.
epoxy resin a tough, chemically resistant, adhesive, flexible, dimensionally stable resin of epoxy polymers; used as denture base material.
ion exchange resin a high-molecular-weight insoluble polymer of simple organic compounds capable of exchanging its attached ions for other ions in the surrounding medium; classified as (a)cation or anion exchange resins, depending on which ions the resin exchanges; and (b) carboxylic, sulfonic, and so on depending on the nature of the active groups.
podophyllum resin a mixture of resins from podophyllum, used as a topical caustic in treatment of laryngeal papillomas, condylomata acuminata, and other epitheliomas.

com·pos·ite res·in

a synthetic resin usually acrylic based, to which a glass or natural silica filter has been added. Used mainly in dental restorative procedures.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the high temperature composite resin industry, include development of resin system with low volatile organic compound (VOC) and increasing focus on thermoplastic resins.
However, this material is weaker than composite resin and is more susceptible to wear and prone to fracture.
Further, it was observed that the mean vertical marginal discrepancy of provisional crowns fabricated by the direct technique using light polymerized UDMA composite resin (71.01um) was slightly greater than that found with chemically polymerized Bis-GMA composite resin (67.15 um).
The bond strength of light-curing composite resin to finally polymerized and aged glass fiber-reinforced composite substrate.
(7) Composite resins are more technique sensitive, require bonding agents to maintain retention, and typically fail sooner than amalgams.
Effect of different mechanical and chemical surface treatments on the repaired bond strength of an indirect composite resin. Lasers in medical science 2015;30(2):653-9.
(12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19) Different surface treatments are essential to increase the surface area and intermediate material wettability, resulting in intimate adaptation of interface resin/restoration and increased composite resin repair strength.
For A2 shaded composite resin, 60 disc shaped specimens were prepared by using a Teflon mold with 1 mm thickness and 10 mm diameter.
Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of different application times of 10% SA after an intracoronal bleaching technique with SP mixed with DW or 30% HP on bonding between the composite resin and dentin and to investigate the optimal application time of 10% SA for improving the bond strength of the composite resin to bleached dentin.

Dentists fill teeth by removing the decayed tooth material with a drill and replacing it with a material such as silver alloy, gold, porcelain, or composite resin. Porcelain and composite resin more closely match the natural tooth appearance, and may be preferred for front teeth.
