OBJECTIVES: The aim of this report was to evaluate the 5-year clinical performance and survival of zirconia (NobelProcera™) single crowns METHODS: All patients treated with porcelain-veneered zirconia single crowns in a private practice during the period October 2004 to November 2005 were included. The records were scrutinized for clinical data. Information was available for 162 patients and 205 crowns RESULTS: Most crowns (78%) were placed on premolars and molars. Out of the 143 crowns that were followed for 5 years, 126 (88%) did not have any complications. Of those with complications, the most common were: extraction of abutment tooth (7; 3%), loss of retention (15; 7%), need of endodontic treatment (9; 4%) and porcelain veneer fracture (6; 3%). No zirconia cores fractured. In total 19 restorations (9%) were recorded as failures: abutment tooth extraction (7), remake of crown due to lost retention (6), veneer fracture (4), persistent pain (1) and caries (1). The 5-year Cumulative Survival Rate (CRS) was 88.8% CONCLUSIONS: According to the present 5-year results zirconia crowns (NobelProcera™) are a promising prosthodontic alternative also in the premolar and molar regions. Out of the 143 crowns followed for 5 years, 126 (88%) did not have any complications. However, 9% of the restorations were judged as failures. Further studies are necessary to evaluate the long-term success.
