The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of surface conditioning on the shear bond strength of zirconium-oxide ceramic to resin cement. A total of 120 disk-shaped zirconium-oxide ceramic blocks(3-TZP, Kyoritsu, Tokyo, Japan) were treated as follows: (1) no treatment; (2) sandblasting with 110 ${\mu}m$ aluminum-oxide(Al2O3); (3) particles tribochemical silica coating(RocatecTM, 3M ESPE). Then zirconium-oxide ceramic blocks were divided into six groups(10 for each group) and bonded with resin cement(Rely X U-200, 3M ESPE). (1) No treatment / No treatment (2) No treatment / Sandblasting with 110 ${\mu}m$ aluminum-oxide particles (3) No treatment / Silica coating (4) Sandblasting with 110 ${\mu}m$ aluminum-oxide particles / Sandblasting with 110 ${\mu}m$ aluminum-oxide particles (5) Sandblasting with 110 ${\mu}m$ aluminum-oxide particles / Silica coating (6) Silica coating / Silica coating. Each group was tested in shear bond strengths by UTM. Data analysis included one-way analysis of variance(ANOVA) and the Tukey Honestly Significant Difference test (P=0.05). Group that bonded two silica coated specimen showed a highest bond strength(P<0.05). Two silica coated surface conditioning group and air-abrasion and silica coated surface conditioning group showed significantly difference with other groups(P<0.05). Other groups had no significantly difference each other. Within the limitation of this study, Surface conditioning with Rocatec treatment to each side of specimen provided the highest bond strength.
