This study was aimed to observe the relationship between the different surface treatments and the bond strength of both composite based adhesive cement and zirconia ceramic. Thirty-two zirconia ceramic discs were fabricated by following the instructions of manufacturer (5 x 5 x 1.5 mm). Four subgroups were obtained from the specimens according to the specified surface treatments respectively: (a) C: control groups: no treatment; (b) SB: sandblasting with 125 mu m aluminum oxide particles for 10 s; (c) SC: silica coating for 10 s; (d) Nd:YAG laser. The composite resin specimens Panavia F and Clearfil SA were introduced and polymerized to the treated bonding areas. Afterwards the specimens were stored in distilled water at 37 degrees C during 24 h, and the shear test was applied. The data were statistically analyzed by ANOVA and Duncan tests. The bond strength was stated significantly higher in silica coating/Panavia F group (23.35 MPa). The lowest bond strength was stated in control groups cemented with Clearfil SA (12.25 MPa). As a result it was determined that the bond strength has affected the both surface treatments and cement types (p < 0.001). The silica coating - treated zirconia ceramic recorded a significant increase in mean bond strength values.
