Objectives: As the development of translucent zirconia crown using CAD/CAM technology, the usage of full zirconia crown is gradually increased. The purpose of this study was to investigate the highest fracture strength of translucent zirconia full zirconia crowns among different brands of translucent zirconia. Methods: Maxillary 1stpremolar resin teeth were prepared the total circumferential axial reduction was about (1 mm), and axial taper of 6°. Three brands of translucent zirconia (Whitepeaks, Imes-icor and Dentaldirect) that was used in three groups, every group contain five full zirconia crowns using CAD/CAM system (CAD/CAM system 250i, Imes-icor, Germany). The samples seated on the resin die using. All specimens were tested with a universal testing machine. Single load-to-fracture was applied on the lingual aspect of the facial cusp at a rate of 1mm/min. The specimens were thoroughly evaluated for bulk fracture with fractography. Results: Statistically high significant difference (p < 0.00) was found between the groups. The fracture strength of the groups varied Whitepeaks crowns was (2737.5 ± 106) N, which was significantly higher than the two overall mean fracture strength measured for the Imes-icor crowns (3620 ± 40) N and Dental direct crowns (3830 ± 130) N, the Dental direct highest fracture strength than other groups. Conclusions. The fracture strength of Dental direct crowns is considerably higher than that of Whitepeaks crown, The fracture strength of all the groups made of monolithic high translucent Y-TZP is exceeded human maximum bite force, sufficient for clinical use for the majority of patients.
