24New zirconia primer improves bond strength of resin-based cements. “Improved marginal adaptation, prevention of microleakage,increased fracture strength, and increased retention insituations where mechanical retention does not exist constitute the benefits of a stable and durable resin bond tozirconia.”Magne P, et al. New zirconia primer improves bond strength of resin-based cements. Dent Mater (2009), doi: /j.dentalNew zirconia primer improves bond strength of resin-based cements.
25New zirconia primer improves bond strength of resin-based cements. “The groups where the experimental zirconia primer (ZrP-groups) was used presented the highest mean bond strength values.”“The groups that did not receive the experimental primer (NP groups)and the group treated with the MDP-containing primer(CCP-group) presented the lowest mean bond strength values”Magne P, et al. New zirconia primer improves bond strength of resin-based cements. Dent Mater (2009), doi: /j.dental
