Objectives. Fiber-reinforced composites (FRC) with different polymer matrix compositions are available on the market. The aim of this study was to compare the degree of monomer conversion of FRC that contained either dimethacrylate resin matrix or semi-IPN resin matrix. In addition, the effect of different types of Light-curing units and durations of light irradiation on the degree of conversion was evaluated.
