STATEMENT OF PROBLEM New composites with improved qualities have been introduced to the dental profession as alternatives to porcelain. There is concern about the strength and reliability of new metal-resin bonding systems when these composites are used as esthetic veneers over metal frameworks. PURPOSE This in vitro study compared the shear bond strength of 2 metal-resin bonding techniques with the bond strength of conventional porcelain fused-to-metal (PFM). Effects of water storage and… CONTINUE READING
