OBJECTIVES The purpose of this laboratory study was to evaluate the influence of different surface conditioning, new ceramic primers and cleaning methods on the bond strength of luting resin to zirconia ceramic (e.max ZirCAD). METHODS A total of 96 zirconia ceramic discs were divided into six groups (n=16) according to surface conditioning, cleaning methods and ceramic primers. Zirconia ceramic discs were either air-abraded with 110 μm alumina particles or tribochemically silica-coated… CONTINUE READING
