Abstract

Prosthetic dentistry is an essential practice for maintaining the structure of the oral cavity. Resin-based materials have been clinically recognized as substitutes to restore lost teeth and function. 3D printing technology has significantly strengthened the production of dental prostheses due to its precision and economic advantages. The oral environment commonly subjects synthetic substitutes to excessive functional stress, causing degradation and clinical failure due to insufficient material integration and toughness. Additionally, the inherent physical properties of dental materials promote microbial adhesion and biofilm formation. Therefore, the development of 3D printed resin is imperative to enhance the clinical performance of dental restorations.
