UNLABELLED The most common clinical failure in metal ceramic restoration is at the ceramo-metal interface. For the clinical longevity, metal-ceramic prostheses must have satisfactory bond strength between metal and ceramic. AIM AND OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of Laser etching on shear bond strength between base metal alloys and ceramic. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 60 specimens were made (Base 5 mm diameter and 1 mm thickness, step with 4 mm diameter and 4… CONTINUE READING
