Abstract

A novel glass-ceramic spray deposition (GCSD) method was developed to modify the yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystal (Y-TZP) surface and to enhance the bond strength between Y-TZP and resin cement. Five different experimental groups were characterized, non-treatment (NT), airborne particle abrasion (AB), GCSD without etching (GS), GCSD with 5% HF etching (GSE5), and GCSD with 9.5% HF etching (GSE9), to determine the optimal method for improving the bond strength. Scanning electron microscopy and an argon ion milling system were used to investigate the surface and cross-sectional microstructures. The changes in the surface characteristics of Y-TZP were analyzed via contact angle analysis, atomic force microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and energy-dispersive X-ray spectrometry. The bond strengths were determined using shear bond strength test. The results revealed that GCSD could produce a dense and uniform lithium disilicate glass-ceramic coating layer and infiltrate the Y-TZP surface. This coating resulted in superior micromechanical interlocking and increased hydrophilicity, thereby enhancing the bond strength between Y-TZP and resin cement (P
