[…] The sample size was calculated using a power analysis software programme (G*Power Version 3.1.9, Dusseldorf, Germany) considering α equal to 5 %, effect size equal to 0.50 and power of 80 % according to One-Way ANAOVA test. Based on the calculations 12 specimens per group yielded to 80 % power. Data were analyzed using a statistical software programme (SPSS Software V.22, Chicago, IL, USA).The Kolmogorov-Simirnov test showed that the data were normally distributed, One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and post-hoc Tukey’s HSD test were applied to analyze the data where the values of transmitted light and surface roughness were the dependent variables and surface conditioning methods (4 levels) as independent variables. P < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant in all tests. […]
