OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effect of the particle size of sandblasting and the composition of the resin cement on the microtensile bond strength (MTBS) to zirconia. METHODS Forty zirconia blocks (Cercon, Dentsply) were polished and randomly treated as follows: Group 1 (NT): no treatment; Group 2 (APA-I): airborne particle abrasion (Cobra, Renfert) using 25-μm aluminium-oxide (Al(2)O(3))-particles; Group 3 (APA-II): APA with 50-μm Al(2)O(3)-particles; and Group 4 (APA-III): APA using 110-μm Al… CONTINUE READING
