Abstract No studies are available that evaluate the retention of disilicate crowns according to different cementation procedures. The purpose of this study was to measure the retention of lithium disilicate crowns cemented using two different cementation systems. Twenty extracted mandibular premolars were prepared. Anatomic crowns were waxed and hot pressed using lithium disilicate ceramic. Teeth were divided into two groups n = 10: 1 self-curing luting composite and 2 glass-ionomer cement GIC. After cementation, the crowns were embedded in acrylic resin block with a screw base. Each specimen was pulled along the path of insertion in Universal Testing Machine. Failure load in Newtons N and failure mode were recorded for each specimen. Failure mode was classified as decementation or fracture. Failure load data were analyzed using one-way analysis of variance ANOVA. Failure modes were compared using Pearson’s Chi-square test. Mean failure load was 306.6±193.8 N for composite group and 94.7±48.2 N for GIC group p = 0.004. Disilicate crown cemented with luting composite most often failed by fracture; otherwise, crown cemented with glass-ionomer cement most often failed by decementation p = 0.02. Disilicate full crown cemented with luting composite showed higher failure load compared with conventional cementation with glass-ionomer cement. View Full-Text
