The literature has demonstrated that cold testing with 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane TFE can be used to assess the pulp vitality of teeth restored with full coverage restorations. In recent years, there has been an increased use of the all ceramic crowns. However, there is no clinical guidance for cold testing of teeth restored with these newer materials. This pilot study compared the thermal conductivity of 3 ceramic restorative materials to natural teeth.
