Abstract

This study was designed as a comparative analysis of the compressive strengths of precious versus nonprecious metals with various framework designs used in clinical restorations. One hundred thirty-five statistically uniform ceramometal restorations were fabricated. The restorations were cemented to the die and then subjected to stroke-control compression forces in an Instron loading machine. Simulated clinical failure was recorded by the Instron load cell recorder in pounds of load.
