Abstract The effect of casting shrinkage on the accuracy of Ni-Cr FPDs cast in one piece was studied. Different amounts of casting shrinkage occurred in different parts of the castings; less in the relatively thick pontic than in the thin retainers. Differences in solidification rate might have produced the effect. The effect could adversely affect the accuracy of such FPDs.
