STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Fracture of composite resin core will be occurred by progress of crack. Bonding interface of different materials has large possibility of starting point of crack line. Therefore, the bond strength of glass fiber post to composite resin core is important for prevention of fracture. Purpose: This in vitrostudy tried to find out how to get the higher strength of glass fiber post to composite resin core through surveying the maximum load that fractures the post and core complex. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 40 specimens made with glass fiber Posts(Style post(R), Metalor, Swiss) and composite resin core(Z-100(R), 3M, USA) were prepared and loaded to failure with push-out type shear-bond strength test in a universal test machine. The maximum fracture load and fracture mode were investigated in the specimens that were restored with four different surface treatments. With the data, ANOVA test was used to validate the significance between the test groups, and Bonferroni method was used to check if there is any significant statistical difference between each test group. Every analysis was approved with 95% reliance. RESULTS: On measuring the maximum fracture load of specimens, both the treatments of sandblasted and acid-etched one statistically showed the strength increase rather than the control group(p<0.005). The scanning electric microscope revealed that sand blasting made more micro-retention form not only on the resin matrix but on the glass fiber, and acid-etching contributed to increase in surface retention form, eliminated the inorganic particles in resin matrix. Specimen fracture modes investigation represented that sand blasted groups showed lower bonding failure than no-sand blasted groups. CONCLUSION: Referring to the values of maximum fracture load of specimens, the bonding strength was increased by sand blasting and acid-etching.
