Précis & Objective

  • Précis
    This study examined patient, dentist, and laboratory factors associated with the fabrication of successful crowns. Each year, dentists must re-do thousands of crowns that are returned from the dental laboratory but are not clinically acceptable. It is not clear why some of these crowns are unsatisfactory. This was a questionnaire that documented current practices among clinicians making crowns, such as material choices and impression techniques.
