The aim of the present study was undertaken to investigate the effects of several surface modification methods applied to lithium disilicate glass ceramics (LDCs) on their bonding durability with resin-based cement. The LDC specimens were sectioned using a low-speed diamond cutting machine, crystallized by heating in a furnace, and then subjected to several surface modification treatments such as acid etching, sandblasting, or silica coating with silane coupling agents. Then, a cylindrical titanium with a sandblasted surface was bonded to the surface-modified LDC specimens using resin-based cement. After being either stored in water at 37°C for 24h or subjected to 10,000 and/or 30,000 thermal cycles, the specimens were subjected to a shear bond strength test using a universal testing machine. The surface-modified LDC specimens obtained by combining blasting and silica coating modification treatments showed excellent durability, similar to that of acid-etched specimens. For safer laboratory practice, we recommend using the silica coating method for LDCs prior to applying silane coupling agents.
