Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Research Topic focuses on modern restorative dentistry, which has been struggling to find success in prolonging the lifespan of restorations, and despite the advancements that novel biomaterials have accomplished throughout the years, the enhancement of the durability and the resistance of these materials is still faced with some obstacles. In this scenario, it is crucial to stay up to date with the latest techniques, application modalities, and materials that are constantly being introduced into the dental market. Passive dental materials are expected to be more stable because they do not react with the oral environment, eliminating the possibility for any harmful effects. A recent example of such technologies is digital dentistry, which has been rapidly gaining popularity, along with additives that positively interact with dental and non-dental substrates.

Consequently, this Special Issue focuses on original research papers and reviews dealing with recent developments in dental biomaterials aiming to improve the mechanical, chemical, biological, and esthetic characteristics. The Topic welcomes, but is not limited to, the following research areas:

  • Adhesion of resin-based materials or indirect restoration to dental and non-dental substrates;
  • An efficient digital workflow by means of computer-aided imaging (CAI), and computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology;
  • Antibacterial, bioactive, and crosslinking agents;
  • Tooth loss and replacement procedures;
  • Core build-up materials for endodontically treated teeth;
  • Clinical restorative techniques for anterior and posterior teeth;
  • Coatings using dental biomaterials.

I/We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Coatings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
