This in vitro study evaluated the fracture resistance of all-ceramic crowns as a function of the elastic modulus of the supporting die. All-ceramic crowns were made for dies with three different elastic moduli and two different crown lengths. The occlusal surface was loaded in compression with a 12.7-mm steel ball. The fracture load increased markedly with the increase in elastic modulus. The largest increase was seen when only the occlusal surface of the crown was covered. The characteristic fracture load of the complete-crown restorations was more than double that of the occlusal-cover restorations in the dies with the lowest modulus of elasticity, while for the dies with the highest modulus of elasticity the difference in the characteristic fracture load for the two configurations was not significant.

    Eighteen type IV dental stone dies were fabricated from a metal master die that replicated a tooth prepared to receive a metal ceramic crown. They were divided into three groups according to the type of crowns to be made: (a) machine-milled, spark-eroded titanium crowns (Procera); (b) cast...

    Eighty-four titanium restorations having 125 ceramic veneers were placed for 32 patients. One hundred sixteen (93%) of the veneers could be reexamined after 21 to 41 months. Two of the restorations required removal because of a partial veneer loss. A Kaplan-Meier survival analysis was performed,...

    A newly designed specimen allowed strength testing of simulated collarless metal ceramic crowns. The design provided precision replication of specimens having ceramic veneers that were completely supported by metal or that were extended 1 and 2 mm beyond the metal support. Twelve specimens of...
