Digital dentistry has led to the popular success of same-day single crown delivery. However, traditional fabrication of zirconia materials typically requires several hours of sintering. A new sintering furnace is available that reportedly sinters zirconia in minutes versus hours. Limited research has been published evaluating the effect of high-speed sintering on the properties of zirconia. Objective The purpose of this study was to compare the mechanical properties and translucency of CEREC Zirconia DENTSPLYSirona sintered using the CEREC SpeedFire high-speed sintering furnace DENTSPLYSirona for 30 minutes and Programat 1600 D1 Ivoclar Vivadent for 4.3 hours.
