This study aimed to determine the appropriate pressure for airborne-abrasion by comparing the shear bond strength values for different hybrid ceramic surfaces. Two materials were used to produce hybrid ceramic specimens: Lava Ultimate and MAZIC Duro. The group of specimens whose surfaces were not subjected to airborne-abrasion was set as the control group. In the experimental group, airborne-abrasion was performed at pressures of 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3 MPa. After the adhesive and resin cement was applied, an SBS test was performed. For the MAZIC Duro block, the SBS increased monotonically with the airborne-abrasion pressure increased, peaking at 0.3 MPa. For the Lava Ultimate block, the SBS increased as the airborne-abrasion pressure increased to 0.2 MPa, and then decreased in the 0.3-MPa group, thereby peaking at 0.2 MPa. This study has confirmed that the bonding strength varies with the material used even when applying the same surface treatment.
