ObjectiveTo coat a zirconia surface with silica-zirconia using a dip-coating technique and evaluate its effect on resin-zirconia shear bond strength (SBS).
MethodsA silica-zirconia suspension was prepared and used to coat a zirconia surface using a dip-coating technique. One hundred and eighty-nine zirconia disks were divided into three groups according to their different surface treatments (polishing, sandblasting, and zirconia coating%29&ck%5B%5D=abstract&ck%5B%5D=keyword'>silica-zirconia coating). Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX), and X-ray diffraction (XRD) were used to analyze the differently treated zirconia surfaces. Different primer treatments (Monobond N, Z-PRIME Plus, and no primer) were also applied to the zirconia surfaces. Subsequently, 180 composite resin cylinders (Filtek Z350) were cemented onto the zirconia disks with resin cement (RelyX Ultimate). The SBS was measured after water storage for 24 h or 6 months. The data were analyzed by two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA).
ResultsSEM and EDX showed that the zirconia coating%29&ck%5B%5D=abstract&ck%5B%5D=keyword'>silica-zirconia coating produced a porous layer with additional Si, and XRD showed that only tetragonal zirconia was on the silica-zirconia-coating surface. Compared with the control group, the resin-zirconia SBSs of the sandblasting group and silica-zirconia-coating group were significantly increased (P<0.05). The zirconia coating%29&ck%5B%5D=abstract&ck%5B%5D=keyword'>silica-zirconia coating followed by the application of Monobond N produced the highest SBS (P<0.05). Water aging significantly reduced the resin-zirconia SBS (P<0.05).
ConclusionsDip-coating with silica-zirconia might be a feasible way to improve resin-zirconia bonding.
