The purpose of this study was to evaluate the marginal fit of metal ceramic crowns made by different techniques. The techniques were metal butt margin technique, platinum foil technique, shoulder powder techniques and wax technique. The latter three techniques were for the fabrication of collarless metal ceramic crowns. Ten crowns were made of each techniques, and marginal fit was evaluated using scanning electron microscope under X200 magnification. The results were as follows. 1. The marginal fit in the descending order were wax technique shoulder powder technique, platinum foil technique and metal butt margin, before cementation, and wax technique, shoulder powder technique, metal butt margin, and platinum foil technique, after cementation. 2. The fit of collarless metal ceramic crowns was comparable to metal ceramic crowns with metal butt margins. 3. There were no statistically significant differences between marginal fit of metal ceramic crowns made by different techniques.
