On each quadrant, several 49N load (P) indents with loading time of fifteen seconds were made using a Vickers hardness machine (W-402MVD Buehler--Lake Bluff, USA) at room temperature; until two acceptable indents per quadrant were selected totaling eight measures per sample and 104 per material.
During sample preparation, we used the optimal composition [24] of BisGMA: TEGDMA: UDMA in a weight ratio of 21.4: 25.4: 53.3 and only one light intensity setting at 1.4 mW/[cm.sup.2], where the Vickers hardness value was found to be near the maximum.

The experimentation result shows that the Vickers hardness of the compaction was varying from 33.2 HV to 55.2 HV.
With Nb added, the effect of lowering Vickers hardness by approximately 100-200 points is verified across the entire retaining time period of 1 h-100 h.

This was repeated twice a day for 60 days after which micro-hardness test was carried out by Vickers micro-hardness tester (Wolpert W Group micro Vickers hardness tester digital auto-turret model number 402MVD) (Figure-2).
