Sandblasting zirconia with alumina creates surface texture to improve bonding.
Products that contain the MDP monomer will bond to zirconia.
Saliva reacts with zirconia and only an alkaline surface cleaner can remove the contamination, resulting in an optimal bond surface.
Contrary to popular belief, bonding to zirconia is achievable. Although the process for bonding to zirconia is the same as for other surfaces, the method differs based upon the substrate of the surface being bonded to.
To optimize bonding to zirconia, you will need both mechanical retention and chemical interaction.
With more knowledge about zirconia, methods of bonding become clear. This eBook describes three predictable protocols that demonstrate that cementation to zirconia can be both simple and reliable.
