|Title:||Heat Treatment-improved Bond Strength Of Resin Cement To Lithium Disilicate Dental Glass-ceramic|
|Abstract:||This study investigated the influence of different hydrofluoric acid (HF) concentrations and heat treatments applied to a lithium disilicate dental glass-ceramic (EMX) on surface morphology and micro-shear bond strength (mu SBS) to resin cement. Five HF concentrations (1%, 2.5%, 5%, 7.5% and 10%) and four different heat treatments applied before etching were assessed: I. etching at room temperature with no previous heat treatment (control group); 2. HF stored at 70 degrees C for 1 min applied to the ceramic surface at room temperature; 3. HF at room temperature applied after a hot air stream is applied perpendicularly to the ceramic surface for 1 min; 4. the combination of previously heated HF and heated EMX surface. The etching time was fixed for 20 s for all groups. Etched EMX specimens were analyzed on field-emission scanning electron microscope (FE-SEM) and the mu SBS was carried out on a universal testing machine at a crosshead speed of 1 mm/min until fracture. For the control groups, FE-SEM images showed greater glassy matrix dissolution and higher mu SBS for 7.5% and 10% HF concentrations. The previous heat treatments enhanced the glassy matrix dissolution more evidently for 1%, 2.5% and 5% and yielded increased mu SBS values, which were not statistically different for 7.5% and 10% HF concentrations (control group). HF concentrations and previous heat treatments did show to have an influence on the etching/ bonding characteristics to lithium disilicate dental glass-ceramic.
