Resin-based materials are widely used for current dental restorations. Their physical, chemical, mechanical and biological properties are crucial for determining the quality and longevity of the restorations. Existing dental resin materials are still facing such issues as low mechanical strength, high polymerization shrinkage and stress, poor biocompatibility, etc., limiting the clinical practice of the materials. Therefore, the researching of new synthesis and modification methods, characterization techniques, mechanisms and the clinical relevance of improved material properties are hot topics that are rapidly evolving in dental resin materials. This Special Issue is devoted to the most recent research on these topics, covering all aspects concerning the advances in the synthesis, modification, characterization, property and applications of dental resin materials.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2700 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.
