          Abstract

          The general demand for a variety of fine detail work made of titanium has resulted in the development of equipment/systems for the casting of this metal. Dental casting machines suitable for the casting of titanium are now also available. The aim of the present study was therefore to evaluate the possibility of precision casting of dental crown restorations of unalloyed titanium. The three kinds of casting equipment currently used in Sweden were tested by evaluating the crown edge diameter of 10 titanium crowns processed by each one of the titanium casting machines. The results revealed that clinically acceptable margins can be obtained but also that further improvements in processing have to be achieved before titanium casting can be considered as uncomplicated as the casting of traditional dental gold alloys.
