Three resins were tested: Evolux PMMA (milled resin), Cosmos Temp (3D-printed resin) and Structure 2 SC (bis-acrylic resin, as a control). Specimens were prepared in a disc shape (n = 9) and the Vickers hardness was measured under a load of 20 N for 10 s at two time points: 24h and 60 days after storage in distilled water at 37 ℃ in an incubator. The data were analysed using the Shapiro-Wilk test followed by the non-parametric Kruskal-Wallis test (p < 0.05)....
