PURPOSE This research investigated the effect of surface treatment on the fatigue life of metal-ceramic postsoldering. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty cylindric specimens were cast in a metal-ceramic alloy. All specimens received appropriate heat treatment simulating ceramic application, although no porcelain was applied. Each specimen was cut in half to form two half specimens. The 40 half specimens were randomly assigned to one of the four treatment groups, which differed in the type of… CONTINUE READING
