Abstract

This clinical study evaluated the survival of monolithic lithium disilicate (MLD) single crowns. Between January-2010 and January-2015, 87 patients received 122 MLD (IPS e.max CAD) single crowns on natural teeth with knife-edge finish lines that were adhesively bonded (Maxcem Elite). MLD single crowns (N=122) were bonded on 60 molars (maxilla:35, mandible:25), 53 premolars (maxilla:27, mandible:26), 4 canines (maxilla:2, mandible:2), 3 laterals and 2 centrals (maxilla). One crown fracture, one retention loss and one endodontic complication were experienced (survival rate: 97.5%). MLD single crowns could be safely indicated on teeth with knife-edge preparations.
