Table 4 Characteristics of polymer-infiltrated ceramic crowns on one-piece zirconia implants

From: Biomechanical properties of polymer-infiltrated ceramic crowns on one-piece zirconia implants after long-term chewing simulation

Characteristics Total n Observations
With CS
 System fractured 20 0% (95% CI 0–16.8%)
 Crowns loosened 20 0% (95% CI 0–16.8%)
 Maximum wear depth 19 0.31 mm (0.04 mm)
 Volume wear 19 0.74 mm3 (0.23 mm3)
 Bond strength (pull-out test) 20 322.8 N (61.9 N)*
Without CS
 Bond strength (pull-out test) 5 588.4 N (57.7 N)*
  1. If not stated otherwise, means (standard deviations) of assessed parameters are shown
  2. *p < 0.001 for comparing the effect of performing a CS (experimental group) vs. performing no CS (control group) on bond strength according to the null hypothesis of no difference between both groups
