Resin-ceramic bonding: a review of the literature.
Available data suggest that resin bonding to these materials is less predictable and requires substantially different bonding methods than to silica-based ceramics, and further in vitro studies, as well as controlled clinical trials, are needed.

The hypothesis that adhesive bonding methods suitable for glass-infiltrated alumina ceramic can also be used to bond successfully to yttrium-oxide--partially-stabilized zirconia ceramic was partially proved and partially disproved as tribochemical silica coating of YPSZ did not result in a durable resin bond as it does on glass- infiltration alumin ceramic.
Influence of air-abrasion on zirconia ceramic bonding using an adhesive composite resin.
Using a self-adhesive luting resin composite (RelyX Unicem), air-abrasion at 0.25 MPa or the combination of low pressure air-ABrasion and priming with MDP-containing primers seems to be useful to achieve durable long-term bonding to zirconia ceramic.
Durability of the resin bond strength to zirconia ceramic after using different surface conditioning methods.
The use of the MDP-containing composite resin Panavia F on air abraded zirconia ceramic can be recommended as promising bonding method.
In vitro evaluation of bacterial leakage along the implant-abutment interface of different implant systems.
It was concluded that the newly developed test model is a sensitive tool for the detection of differences between current implant systems with respect to their ability to prevent bacterial penetration at the implant-abutment interface under dynamic loading conditions.

Cantilever all-ceramic resin-bonded fixed partial dentures made from high-strength oxide ceramics present a promising treatment alternative to two-retainer RBFPDs in the anterior region.

A durable resin bond strength to yttrium-oxide-partially-stabilized zirconia ceramic (YPSZ) was achieved only after air abrasion of YPSZ and using one of two resin composites containing a special phosphate monomer.

The tensile bond strength of six bonding systems to In-Ceram ceramic was tested after up to 150 days of storage in isotonic artificial saliva solution and thermal cycling and indicated that extended storage in a wet environment was needed in laboratory tests to evaluate the durability of chemical bonds.
Surface Conditioning Influences Zirconia Ceramic Bonding
The combination of air-abrasion and priming improved long-term resin bonding to zirconia ceramic significantly and resulted in debonding during artificial aging independent of using primers.
Osseointegration and clinical success of zirconia dental implants: a systematic review.
Y-TZP implants may have the potential to become an alternative to titanium implants but cannot currently be recommended for routine clinical use, as no long-term clinical data are available.
