Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate in vivo the influence of aged, resin-bonded, ceramic restorations on approximal dental biofilm formation and gingival inflammatory response, associated with and without customary oral hygiene. Material and Methods: In a cross-sectional and in a 10-day experimental gingivitis study, Quigley-Hein plaque index, gingival index (GI), crevicular fluid and its levels of interleukin (IL)-1alpha, -1beta and receptor antagonist were measured at appoximal surfaces of leucite-reinforced bonded ceramic coverages, resin composite restorations and enamel and compared intra-individually in 17 participants. Results: No differences were found between the ceramic, composite and enamel regarding plaque index, GI, levels of IL-1alpha, -1beta and the receptor antagonist. Throughout, higher crevicular fluid amounts were observed at ceramic sites compared with the enamel (p<0.05). In the experimental gingivitis, plaque index, GI, crevicular fluid and its IL-1alpha levels increased significantly. Conclusion: The need for optimal oral hygiene and professional preventive oral health care does not seem to be reduced with regard to approximal surfaces of aged, resin-bonded, leucite-reinforced ceramic restorations in comparison with those of a hybrid, resin composite and enamel.
