Fit of e.max Crowns Fabricated Using Conventional and CAD/CAM Technology: A Comparative Study

The aim of this study was to examine the fit accuracy of e.max crowns by investigating marginal and internal gaps. Materials and Methods: In experiment 1, 60 e.max computer aided design/computer-assisted manufacture (CAD/CAM) crowns were manufactured. The crowns were fabricated using optical scanning of artificial teeth (Op group) or scanning of a plaster model following a silicone impression (M group). Cement space settings of 90, 120, and 150 μm were applied. Marginal and internal crown gaps were compared among six conditions (Op90, Op120, Op150, M90, M120, M150). In experiment 2, e.max CAD crowns from the Op group (CADop group) and the M group (CADm group) were compared with e.max Press crowns (Press group) by measuring marginal and internal gaps of the crowns using Scheffe multiple comparison test. The level of significance was set at .05. R
