Effect of Surface Treatments on Bonding Strength of Zirconia to Dental Cements
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of surface treatments on bonding strength of two kinds of zirconia to two kinds of dental cements. After thermal cycling, the shear bonding strength of both zirconia with alumina coating increased in both cements. The shear bonding strength of both zirconia with sandblasting decrease in Fuji plus after thermal cycling (p<0.05). There was no significant difference between NANOZR and Y-TZP (p>0.05). The bonding strengths of NANOZR with the alumina coating were higher than those with sandblasting after thermal-cycling (p<0.05).
