Clinical fitting of CAD/CAM Zirconia single Crown

A clinical trial was made with a goal of testing the accuracy of single 
all­ceramic zirconia crowns resulting from digital intraoral impressions 
with active wavefront sampling technology by measuring the marginal 
and internal fits of the crowns. 
Thirty­ seven teeth (24 anterior and 13 posterior) in fifteen patients 
were used for testing. The marginal and internal fitting values
obtained were within literature agreed as clinically acceptable for both 
anterior and posterior teeth.
In conclusion, single crown restorations obtained using digital intraoral 
impressions based on active wavefront sampling technology presented 
enough accuracy to be used as an alternative to the conventional 
impression techniques.
