Warpage of alumina copings

Abstract [en]

This report investigates the cause of warpage in dental copings. Five different mechanisms known to cause differential shrinkage: density gradient, temperature gradient, gravidity, friction and residual stresses were investigated. Experiments have shown that none of these mechanisms, except a density gradient, could be ruled out as a cause of the observed warpage. A density gradient is caused by e.g. inhomogeneous packing and heterogeneities. Within the limitation of the X-ray computed tomography (5%) no gradients could be found. However, smaller gradients could still result in the observed differential shrinkage. Scanner mesurements were used to describe how a possible density gradient could lead to the observed warpage. However, an unknown phenomenon could be a possible cause for the differential shrinkage.
