The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of the impression replica technique with a four-unit zirconia fixed dental prosthesis (FOP). Marginal and internal fit were measured by repeatedly placing the FDP on an epoxy cast using light-body silicone material corresponding to cement. All measured marginal and internal fit points showed varying values. The greatest variations were seen at the most distal margin (33 mu m) and at the distal abutment of the FDP (77 mu m). The results showed that the technique gives moderate variations and is a useful method to evaluate marginal and internal fit.
