PMID: 18950069

The aim of this study was to evaluate the stress distribution at the marginal edge of metal-free crowns using 2 different materials (ceramic and hybrid composite) and 4 different preparation designs (knife edge, chamfer, heavy chamfer, rounded shoulder). All marginal preparation designs for hybrid composite crowns showed lower compression and tensile stress than the ceramic crowns. The rounded shoulder preparation provided more even stress distribution than the knife-edge preparation. Heavy chamfer was an acceptable preparation design for ceramic crowns. The chamfer preparation was preferred for hybrid composite crown. Int J Prosthodont 2008;21:445447.
