Recent advances in ceramics have greatly improved the functional and esthetic properties of restorative materials.New materials offer an esthetic and functional oral rehabilitation, however their impact on opposing teeth is not well documented.The aim of the study was to evaluate prevalence of different materials for full veneer crowns used by dentists for a single full veneer crown based on location and choice made by dentist..A Cross-sectional, descriptive study was conducted in an institution, on randomly selected individuals. The study group consisted of adult patients who attended the outpatient Department of Prosthodontics from June 2019- March 2020.86000 case sheets were evaluated and frequency distribution test was used to explore the relationship between two variables.Comparison of the groups showed that Hand layered zirconia crown was preferred by 42.3 % individuals.Metal ceramic was predderd by 10.3% of the individuals.Monolithic zirconia was preferred by 47.4 % of the individuals.With the era of metal free crowns monolithic is preferred to solve the chipping problems which are to be considered before getting a hand layered zirconia crown or a metal ceramic crown.
