    Author(s): Zainab H Al-Naser* and Faiza M Abdul-Ameer

    Introduction: Silicone elastomers have a long history of widespread use in the creation of maxillofacial and other types of prosthetic devices, particularly in situations where soft tissue and anatomic (shape) reconstruction are required. Despite the fact that they are used all over the world, they aren't ideal in every way. The long life of maxillofacial prostheses is based on the material used in the prosthesis also the patient's attitude and feeling toward the prosthesis, and it can be directly related to the effectiveness of the prosthesis when it comes to achieving its objectives. Aim of the study: To evaluate the effect of the addition of an optimum weight percentage of a mixture of the yttrium oxide nanoparticles and intrinsic pigment (burnt sienna) on some physical and mechanical properties of room-temperature-vulcanized (RTV) VST50HD maxillofacial silicone elastomer, ..
