Abstract

Poor marginal fidelity resulting in a large marginal gap increases plaque accumulation, gingival inflammation and dental caries. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the marginal fit of three different cervical finishing methods of prepared teeth. A stereomicroscope was used to measure the space between the margin of restoration and the finishing line of prepared tooth. The results were statistically analyzed using the ANOVA and Multiple Range Test(Tukey`s HSD). The results were as follows : 1. There were no significant differences concerning the types of tooth and position (P<0.05),whereas the differences were statistically significant in case of cervical finishing methods (P<0.05). 2. There were statistically significant differences between before and after cementation (P<0.05). 3. In comparison according to variable margin after cementation, the gap discrepancies were increased in 130degreeshoulder margin, chamfer margin and 90degreeshoulder margin in ascending order, and there were significant differences between 90degreeshoulder margin and chamfer, 130degreeshoulder margin 4. In comparison according to variable margins, the gap discrepancies were increased in chamfer margin, 130degreeshoulder margin and 90degreeshoulder margin in ascending order, and there were significant differences between 90degreeshoulder margin and chamfer, 130degreeshoulder margin 5. This study demonstrated a better marginal fit with all-ceramic crowns fabricated on chamfer and 130degreeshoulder margin compared with 90degreeshoulder margin.
