Background: The popularity of all ceramic restorations has increased recently due to superior esthetic appearance. Zirconium oxide all ceramic material constructed using CAD/CAM technology demonstrates one of the most successful systems that are used nowadays. Retention is very important factor to prevent dislodgement of prosthetic restoration and ensures the restoration longevity.
Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the retentive strength of zirconia crowns luted using two different luting agents on two different preparations.
Material and methods: A total of 20 extracted non carious premolars teeth were collected and prepared using standardized technique. The prepared teeth were divided into two equal groups based on the degree of preparation taper, group I: all ceramic crown preparation were done with (5-10°) degrees and group II: all ceramic crown preparation were done with (15-20°) degrees taper, then every group was further subdivided into two equal subgroups according to cement type (Polycarboxylate and adhesive resin cement). Zirconia crowns were constructed. Retention of the crowns was measured using universal testing machine.


Key words: Zirconia, all-ceramic, polycarboxylate, resin, retention
