Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the shear bond strength (SBS) between alumina-toughened zirconia (ATZ) cores and veneering ceramics, investigate the effect of aging in artificial saliva on SBS and compare it with that of yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystals(Y-TZP). Methods: Bars of ATZ and Y-TZP were layered with veneering ceramics in accordance to the recommendation of the manufacturer. Half of each group (n = 10) was aged at 134 °C (under 2 bar pressure) in an autoclave for 48 h. Subsequently, all specimens were subjected to shear force in a universal testing machine. The interface and fractured surface of the specimens were evaluated using scanning electron microscopy and X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy. Results: The initial mean SBS values in MPa±SD were 28.9±8.0 for ATZ and 26.2±7.6 for Y-TZP. After aging, the mean SBS values for ATZ and Y-TZP were 22.9±4.9 MPa and 22.8±6.9 MPa, respectively. Neither the differences between the SBS values of the ATZ and Y-TZP groups nor the influence of aging on all groups were statistically significant. Conclusions: The SBS between the ATZ core and the veneering ceramics was not affected by aging. The SBS of ATZ to veneering ceramics was not significantly different compared with that of Y-TZP. © 2012 Hainan Medical College.
