Aim: The purpose of the study was to investigate the influence of two factors on the fit of zirconia-based frameworks: the teeth preparation design and the achieving technology. Materials and methods: Sixteen maxillary molar working dies were created from two master dies and divided into four groups. The master dies were fabricated with two different preparation designs: chamfer, and shoulder. Zirconia based crown frameworks were obtained through classical modeling/CAM, and CAD/CAM procedures. For both the Cercon system was used. Marginal and internal fit for all restorations were measured on the dies using cross-sections. Results: The mean gap size varied between 81.07 and 98.53 μm for the tested groups. There was no the significant difference in the fit of CAM obtained zirconia-based frameworks, irrespective of the studied technologies or preparation designs. Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, both marginal designs and achieving technologies are within acceptable ranges.
