Bonding Strength Between Zirconia Core and Different Veneering Ceramics
Zirconia ceramics are now widely used in dental restorations. The veneering porcelain chipping happens sometimes in zirconia-porcelain all-ceramic system. The objective of this study was to evaluate the bonding strength between the zirconia core and various commercial veneering ceramics. The shearing and bending methods were used to evaluate the bonding strengths of zirconia core and four veneering ceramics. Meanwhile, as surface treatment will play an important role for the bonding strength, the influence of 3 kinds of surface treatment was investigated. The results indicated that both the shearing and bonding strengths of Cercon ceram kiss is better. Moreover sand blasting is the most useful method of surface treatment.
