Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In response to an increased public demand for esthetic restorations, dentists are using computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM) technology to fabricate inlay/onlay, crown, and laminate veneers. This study evaluated the fit at the gingival margin of surface inlay restorations milled by the CEREC II as well as the more recently developed CEREC III. The marginal fit of inlays milled by the CEREC III was more accurate than the fit of those milled by the CEREC II, although both were within the ADA specifications of 50 μ.
