While dentin-bonded crowns may hold esthetic advantages over metal-ceramic restorations, and minimal tooth preparation may also be appropriate, resistance to fracture of the restored unit is an important consideration. Dentin-bonded crowns were placed on standardized preparations in two groups of 10 maxillary premolar teeth in vitro. The preparations differed only in degree of taper. The restored specimens were subjected to compressive loading at 1 mm/min from a steel bar placed along the… CONTINUE READING
