Compared to the neat matrix material, FRC has highly favorable mechanical properties, and their strength-to-weight ratios are superior. In addition, FRCs have potential for use in many applications in dentistry and are expected to gain increasing applications in the future. This book includes both review and research papers in different FRC areas from contributors around the world. (Imprint: Nova)
