The purpose of this study was to identify crown materials and luting agents that would decrease the stress concentrated at the roots of endodontically treated teeth. To this end, natural tooth model (NT), full cast crown model (gold-silver-palladium alloy; MC), polymer-based restorative material crown model (HCC), and all-ceramic crown model (ACC) were constructed. In each model, methyl methacrylate-based resin cement (MMA) and composite cement (CC) were used as luting agents. The magnitudes of… CONTINUE READING
