The compressive yield strength and creep of 21 dental composite resins were evaluated and correlated with filler volume percent and extent of cure in the resin. In general, yield and creep of composites were more dependent upon filler volume fraction than on extent of cure. However, the types of monomers and fillers used in the composite formulation appeared to play a major role in determining the compressive characteristics of the materials.
