The purpose of this study is to investigate the reparation of metal ceramic crowns with ceramic mass. 30 metal ceramic crowns which restore the upper first central incisor (2.1) were divided in three groups. Each group was repaired with a different ceramic material. Group 1- In Line (Ivoclar Vivadent) ceramic, the second group was repaired with D. Sign (Ivoclar Vivadent) and for the last group was used VMK. Master (Vita). All the repaired crowns were investigated through imagistic non-invasive methods. The metallic infrastructure of the samples was made from Ni-Cr alloy and the porcelain mass was Kiss (D. Sign). Defects were made on the buccal surface of each crown. The ceramic mass and the opaque were removed and the metallic infrastructure was exposed. Size defects has 3Ã?3mm and it is situated on incise and 1/3 medium buccal surface. The defect was made with a green grinding instrument under air-water cooling. All the samples were conditioned and repaired with ceramic mass. The reparations were investigated with two noninvasive imagistic methods Rx and Optical Coherence Tomography Time Domain in order to detect de reparation's defects. The investigation methods may spot the presence or absence defects localized at the interface between the two materials and those localized in the ceramic mass.
