Purpose: To investigate the impact of high-speed sintering on the accuracy (trueness and reproducibility) and fit of 4Y-TZP full-coverage single-unit fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) and three-unit FDPs. Materials and Methods: Single-unit FDPs, conventional three-unit FDPs, and cantilever three-unit FDPs (N = 108; n = 12 per subgroup) were fabricated from: (1) high-speed sintered (1,580°C, about 20 minutes) multi-layer 4Y-TZP (Zolid RS, Amann Girrbach; ZMLH group), as well as two conventionally sintered (1,450°C, about 10 hours) materials: (2) multi-layer 4Y-TZP (Zolid Gen-X, Amann Girrbach; ZMLC group) and (3) monochrome 4Y-TZP (Ceramill Zolid HT+ PS, Amann Girrbach; ZMOC group). All specimens were scanned. Trueness, reproducibility, and fit were measured with 3D analysis software. For data analysis, Kolmogorov-Smirnov, Kruskal-Wallis, and Mann-Whitney U tests were performed (α = .05). Results: Three-unit FDPs made from ZMLH presented a deterioration of accuracy in comparison to ZMLC (P ≤ .001 to .008). The influence of highspeed sintering on marginal and general fit was not clinically relevant (P = .154 to .877). Conclusion: High-speed sintering influenced the accuracy of 4Y-TZP full-coverage single-unit and three-unit FDPs. However, no clinically relevant impact on fit was observed.
