STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Tensile strength of metal crown cemented with provisional cement have shown clinically difference between metal abutment of implant and natural abutment. PURPOSE: This study was tested to compare the tensile strength of provisional cement on the natural abutment and metal abutment. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Out of the 20 premolars that were selected for this experiment, each 10 were prepared of abutments by chamfer and rounded shoulder margin and then duplicated to produce 20 metal abutments that were same to natural teeth. Then, crowns were fabricated to fit the total 40 natural & metal abutments to be cemented by cavitec, to be added of regular, repetitive vertical load, and to be measured of tensile strength by using Universal Test Machine. RESULTS: There was statistically significant difference in the tensile strength between the crowns cemented to the natural & metal abutments, but no statistically significant difference was observed between the chamfer and the shoulder gingival margin of the each abutments. CONCLUSIONS: Tensile strength of metal teeth is greater about 2 more times than that of natural teeth when it is cemented with Cavitec.
