The effect of surface treatment on the shear bond strength of luting cement to a glass-infiltrated alumina ceramic.

PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of three different surface treatments on the bond strength of four different luting cements--three bis-GMA-based resin cements and a compomer cement--to In-Ceram. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eight In-Ceram samples were used for each experimental group. The samples were randomly assigned three treatment… CONTINUE READING
