Clinical Fit of Monolithic Zirconia Single Crowns
Rau, Stefanie Anke / Raedel, Michael / Mikeli, Aikaterini / Raedel, Martina / Walter, Michael H.
Purpose: To analyze the clinical fit of monolithic zirconia single crowns (MZSCs) in a prospective cohort study.
Materials and Methods: A total of 30 posterior teeth were restored with MZSCs. Silicone replicas were made to measure the clinical fit using a stereomicroscope. Measurements were conducted at 17 points per crown at the marginal and occlusal surfaces.
Results: The mean clinical fit was 0.104 mm at the crown margin and 0.101 mm at the occlusal surface. Measured distances at the marginal and occlusal surfaces were comparable.
Conclusion: MZSCs showed acceptable clinical fit.
