A male patient presented for maxillary and mandibular complete-arch prostheses. A total of eight all-ceramic restorations, eight metal-ceramic crowns, and four metal-ceramic fixed partial dentures were placed. The restorations were examined for marginal integrity, anatomic form, surface, and color for a period of 12 months. All restorations were in function at the end of the evaluation period. There was no adverse event. No substantial difference between the all-ceramic onlays and the metal-ceramic crowns was apparent. The all-ceramic restorations exhibited the least plaque growth. Bleeding on probing was minimal at both restoration types. The marginal integrity of the all-ceramic restorations was considered to be nearly as precise as that of the metal-ceramic crowns.
