Purpose: The aim of the study was to evaluate the clinical performance of Procera Alumina AllCeram crowns (Nobel Biocare). Materials and Methods: In 70 patients, 61 anterior and 46 posterior teeth were provided with single crowns and cemented with a glass-ionomer cement. Results: Four patients were lost to follow-up. Six crowns had to be removed, all because of nonreparable fracture. At 6 years, the cumulative survival rate was 94.3% for all crowns, 96.7% for anterior crowns, and 91.3% for posterior crowns (survival = not removed). Most of the defects occurred within the first 1.5 years. Conclusion: The findings indicate a good clinical prognosis of both anterior and posterior Procera Alumina crowns.
