This article describes the development of a three-dimensional finite element model of a premolar, based on a micro-scale computed tomographic data-acquisition technique. Using the model shrinkage stresses were analysed during and after the polymerisation process of resin composite. The stress patterns generated were three-dimensional. The results of this study indicate that failure of the interface is more probable than failure of the composite material. The described procedure is a relatively easy method to produce a highly detailed 3-D finite element model of a premolar with an adhesive cups-replacing restoration.
