CAD/CAM technology had evolved extensively from the time when it was first used clinically in the 1980s. Today, CAD/CAM technology can be used to fabricate crowns, design and mill fixed partial denture frameworks, set teeth and fabricate complete dentures as well as to mill interim restorations. An extensive literature review found many research studies on the evaluation of the accuracy of the CAD/CAM ceramic crowns as compared to other ceramic crowns but little research had been done to evaluate the accuracy of interim restorations. This article describes the method in which CAD/CAM as well as conventional interim crowns were fabricated, cemented onto their dies, dye stained, thermocycled as well as sectioned with their marginal discrepancies investigated.
