Purpose: To report on pilot tests for a planned study on single implant-supported crowns made from different restorative materials using finite element analysis (FEA) and in vitro load-to-failure testing. Materials and Methods: Within this pilot study, FEA was conducted using Ansys 2019 R2 to simulate stress and deformation for implant-supported crowns made of lithium disilicate ceramic (LiS2) and zirconia (3Y-TZP). Additionally, an in vitro load to failure test was conducted using two specimens per group to evaluate the failure mode and to confirm the findings from the FEA. Results/Conclusion: FEA revealed stress areas at the palatal cervical areas of the crowns. In the load to failure test, both hybrid abutment crowns made of LiS2 fractured (410 N and 510 N) before plastic deformation of the metal implant components occurred. The monolithic hybrid abutment crowns made of 3Y-TZP did not fracture until tests were interrupted at 646-N and 690-N occlusal force, when plastic deformation of the metal implant components was visually observed.
