Abstract

By definition and general agreement, smart materials are materials that have properties which may be altered in a controlled fashion by stimuli, such as stress, temperature, moisture, pH, and electric or magnetic fields. Thus, smart materials respond to stimuli by altering one or more of their properties. These properties have a beneficial application in various fields including dentistry. Shape memory alloys, zirconia, and smart seal are examples of materials exhibiting a smart behavior in dentistry. There is a strong trend in material science to develop new materials. These materials would potentially allow new and ground-breaking dental therapies with a significantly enhanced clinical outcome of treatments. With the help of this review we can have a better understanding of these materials.
