Background The selection of implant-restorative components and mechanisms must be considered a critical factor for the long-term success of implant-supported prosthetics. To date, regarding monoimplant- supported single crowns, there is inadequate systematic data to support a single connecting system, and the decision remains controversial. Objectives In vitro current study aimed to compare the effect of two cement interface spaces of cement-retained mono-implant on the fracture load of the hybrid crown. Material and Methods Fourteen mono-implant abutments were attached and embedded in acrylic resin blocks. They were divided into two groups according to cement interface space of 80μm and 160μm (n=7). The full anatomical crown was milled using Vita Enamic® with a uniform cement space of 80μm and 160μm by Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) production method. The study data were statistically analyzed using the Student’s t-test, with a confidence interval of 95%. Results A statistically significant difference was noticed between the two groups (P≤0.05). In a cement space gap of 80μm, the mean fracture load value was 2179(±97)N. However, a mean value of 1814(±102)N was recorded in a cement space of 160μm. A significant increase was found in the hybrid crown with 80μm cement space. Conclusion Within the scope of this in vitro investigation, a stronger mono-implant hybrid crown was noticed with a cement space of 80μm than that of 160μm.
