STATEMENT OF PROBLEM The excessively thick and nonadherent titanium oxide layer formed during the porcelain sintering process can cause bonding problems between titanium and porcelain. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of a magnetron-sputtered ZrSiN/ZrO2 composite film on the bond strength of commercially pure titanium (CP Ti) to porcelain. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty-eight cast titanium specimens were prepared according to the ISO 9693 standard and then divided… CONTINUE READING
