Purpose The purpose of this study was to measure the shear bond strength SBS of adhesive-coated metal brackets to zirconia conditioned with four different universal primer systems produced by 3M, Ormco, Reliance, and Kuraray. These were compared to a conventional primer system to serve as a control. Additionally, bond failure modes were characterized using the Adhesive Remnant Index ARI survey.
