Important solved Questions for NBDE part 2-2

QUESTION: complementary color used to change
Answer- Orange stain is the most often used to change the HUE. Staining a porcelain restoration
will reduce the VALUE (aswill using a complementary color). It is almost impossible to increase
the value.

QUESTION: If you add a complementary color yellow, what happens to the hue?
answer- Decrease red content of yellow red shade.
Side note: adding yellow stain=Inc chroma of basic yellow shade Pink purple makes yellow
yellow red.

QUESTION:Which represents position on the spectral wavelength?
Answer-hue denotes the specific wavelength of light .
Notes- it should be in hormony with the patient’s skin color or else it produce an artificial look on teeth.

QUESTION: what is best way to determine value?
answer- open eye as wide as you can, arrange the shade guide in increasing value .
The canines are a good reference point in selecting a shade because they have the highest chroma
(intensity) of the dominate hue (color) of the teeth..
When making shade selections it is important not to view the comparison for more than 7
seconds at a time to avoid fatiguing the cones of the retina. We recommend you gaze at a neutral
grey wall card. In fact, looking away at a grey card between each 7-second shade evaluation will
reset the focus of your eyes and depth perception.

question:How pick shade or value?
answer- Most important, Lightness. Put shade guide from light to dark. Half close eyes to
increase sensitivity to better select value. Squint test for chroma.
Notes-squint test-it is used to check and compare the color of the teeth with the color of the face .
the dentist should partially close his eyes to reduce light and compare artificial teeth of different
shades with the colour of the face and teet. The colour of the teeth that fades first from view is
least conspicuous (contrasting) to the colour of the face.

Question:in order to prevent metamerism , which of the following a dentist should do?
• Use a consistent look in light.
• Shade under multiple light sources.
answer: Shade under multiple light sources.
notes-Metamerism is a complication in color perception as various light sources produce
different perceptions of color. It will create problems in shade selection.(or) Metamerism is the
phenomenon inwhich a color match under a lighting condition appears different under a different
lighting condition.

Answer-non working LUBL
Working BULL
Protrusive mudl
Retrosive dumlInterference
Working=LUBL incline
Non working = BULL incline

Doudt Question:wear facets on lingual inclines of maxillary lingual cusp and facial inclines of
mandibular facial cusp on left side?
• Left working interface
• Protrusive interface
• Right non working interface• Left working interface
Answer-right non-working interference or left working interface
According to this left working
-Right Non-working interference…. because those aforementioned inclines are involved in the
left laterotrusive (working) and right mediotrusive (balancing/non-working) interference, as
shown in the image. The inclines involved in protrusive interference are always mesial and distal

answer-buccal incline of the lingual cusp

QUESTION: In restoring a canine protected occlusion, with anterior overbite of about 2mm. The
buccal cusps of posterior teeth should be flat, BECAUSE they will guide the protrusion.
a. both are true
b. only the second statement is true
c. both are false
Answer-both false(flat teeth cant guide occlusion and anyways its canine protected.. so canines
will guide eccentric movements)
notes-anything away from centric is eccentric (protrusive included).. but anteriors and condylar
guidance play a bigger role in protrusion, if Canines are removed. And nothing changes then rest
of the anteriors guide it.. if canine protected is impaired due to some restoration e.g. Crown then
it might become a group function

QUESTION: what kind of occlusion is if in right lateral movement all posterior teeth are not in
occlusion?Answer- canine guidence

QUESTION: MOD amalgam that passes the 1/3 distance of cusp height, do what ?
MOD amalgam,
MOD composite,
MOD onlay,
MOD inlay
Answer-mod onlay( Inlay is also limited to 1/3rd. Onlay will protect the weakened tooth)
question;Indirect composite inlay has the following advantages over the directcomposite
a. Efficient polymerization.
b. Good contact proximally.
c. Gingival seal.
d. Good retention/
notes-The line angles are converging towards gingival floor in inlay and diverging in case of
direct restoration. The resistance will be fine but retention will be low due to obtuse line angles
in proximal box.That’s why usual point of breakage is the isthmus between dove tail and
proximal box due to outward directed forces.
In direct restorations, the gingival floor in proximal box is made reclining or the axial lines
angles are acute due to which proximal box is self retentive and not relying on the dove tail for
retention. While in indirect restoration, to be able to place cured ingut in the prepared cavity, the axial line angles are obtuse, hence retention comes from.the dove tail, the weakest part of which
is the isthmus.

QUESTION: Most important factor when placing a composite in post teeth?
Answer-case selection

QUESTION: You place a conservative composite on a posterior tooth and the patient returns due
to sensitivity. What is the most likely reason?
A. Putting large amount of comp while filling,
B. microleakage,
C. trauma to dentin during preparation,
D. Etch causing pulpal pain,
answer-shrinkage occurs with most of composite restoration even minor degrees because of
factor C ,then if bacteria enter and leakage it’s then considered failure
With other options can be higher occlusion(Failure decay, microleakage 2-Sensitivity occlusion,

QUESTION: Most common reason for replacing posterior composites?
REcCURENT caries

1. For more surface area
2. Esthetics
question:Which one is not reason for post-op sensitivity Class I comp?
cusp deformation due to shrinkage force,
Gap for microbes,
Gap for leakage and movement of fluid from pulp outwards,
Direct contact of etchant and bonding to pulp
answer- cusp deformation due to shrinkage force(bcs of C factor, remember that in class 1 we
have the most shrinkage force. Bcs of acid-etch bonding micro leakage is minimum right after

QUESTION: Restore tooth with MOD comp. then pt. comes back 2 days later with sensitivity.
Then you put composite over it and relieves the pain. What is reason?
answer-Creates better seal and helps reduce marginal microleakage

question-Post operative sensitivity following placement of composite, which is the least likely
1. Shrinkage allowing fluid in dentinal tubules
2.Shrinkage allowing bacteria to get in and cause sensitivity
3. Acid in the etchant material causing pulpal sensitivity
answer-B — coz sensitivity occurs due to open dentinal tubules…bacterial invasion–>causing
caries n demineralization–> n opening of dentinal tubules is a long term effect

QUESTION: How to fix porcelain chip on PFM with composite?
answer- microetch or HF,>silane, >bond and composite

QUESTION: pt has composite restoration with severe pain with localized swelling?
Answer-incision and drinage

QUESTION: Pt had #8 & had a bunch of little pits in #8; how would you fix it? Composite over
pits, or over entire tooth, or veneer w/ porcelain,
Answer-composite over pits

QUESTION: pt complains of a marginal stain on #8, what do you do?
answer-Marginal stain polishing

Doudt QUESTION: Similar question: Patient’s chief complaint is #8 and #9 don’t look right.
Picture shows nothing is wrong with #9, #8 has extra enamel at the incisal-distal aspect. What do
you do? – Shave the inciso-distal aspect of #8. (Other choices were stupid; like put composite on
both teeth, put a crown on #9, etc)QUESTION: Advantage of a direct composite vs.indirect composite?
answer-the effect of polymerisation shrinkage is eliminated in indirect composite onlay.
but then the direct method is less time consuming.Better marginal adaptation with direct
indirect composites are superior to direct composites because the bulk of polymerization
shrinkage takes place outside the mouth and consequently there is less stress at the toothrestoration margin and as a result there is:
– Less microleakage
– Less marginal breakdown
– Less post-operative sensitivity u Less marginal staining.

QUESTION: You place a CaOH on the tooth for a direct pulp cap what is needed?
Answer-gic liner

question-Etchant does all except?
A) Increase surface area,
B) remove debris,
C) Increase wettability of enamel,
D) dec irregularities at cavosurface margin.
Answer- decrease irregularities at cavosurface margin.

QUESTION: Beveling in acid etching composite?
answer- Increase surface area

QUESTION: Etch dissolves smear ?
answer-etching with acid, in addition to removing the Smear Layer and exposing the surface
collagen, also removed the peritubular dentin from the top 5 –10 µm of the tubules, yielding a
tubule with a funnel shaped orifice.

QUESTION: Acid-etching does not cause.
Reduced leakage,
better esthetics,
increased strength of composites
Answer-better esthetics
Acid etch technique: conserves tooth structure, reduces microleakage, improves esthetics and
provides micromechanical retention. Etch does improve marginal seal, helps in wetting enamel,
cleans surface debris, created micropores (roughness of surface)

QUESTION: if contamination after etch?
Answer- re etch

QUESTION: the difference of total etch and self etch
answer-Total etch requires separate phosphoric acids top to etch enamel n dentin a subsequent
rinse and application of primer n bond..
Self etch system Hav an acidic resin which etched n primes without the needful etchings ringing
ten subsequent application of bond. Most unreliable
Self etch – smear layer not removed
Total etch- smear layer removed

QUESTION: Function of filler in resin?
answer- Improved workability by increasing viscosity 2-Reduction in water sorption, softening
& staining 3- Increased radiopacity & diagnostic sensitivity 4- Reduction in thermal expansion &
contraction 5- Increased compressive strength, tensile strength, modulus of elasticity 6- Increase in abrasion resistance Increased fracture toughness 7-Enhances physical & mechanical
properties to the level of tooth tissue clinical performance & durability8- Increases translucency
9- Improves handling properties.

QUESTION: Filler composites?
