The purpose of this study is to investigate the fit of zirconia cores and all-ceramic crowns prepared with different cervical margin designs. The radius of curvature between the axial wall and the occlusal surface was set to 1 mm in an abutment using the cervical shoulder marginal design (S) and to 0.2 and 0.5 mm in abutments with round shoulders (0.2RS and 0.5RS, respectively). The internal gaps of the cores were 45-138 μm (S), 41-141 μm (0.2RS), and 43-133 μm (0.5RS). The internal gaps of the all-ceramic crowns were 40-115 μm (S), 45-113 μm (0.2RS), and 42-126 μm (0.5RS). There were no significant differences in one-way ANOVA for any region in any marginal design before and after firing the porcelain. The marginal gaps between the all-ceramic crowns and dies were 27±25 (S), 30±29 (0.2RS), and 24±27 μm (0.5RS), again with no significant differences in one-way ANOVA.
