Purpose: To evaluate the influence of polymerization methods and a metal priming agent on the bond strength between gold alloy for metal ceramic restorations and dual-cure-type resin luting agents, and on the strength and hardness of the luting agents. Methods: A total of 154 disks cast by a gold alloy were treated with or without a metal priming agent. One of the three luting agents was applied on the disk. The luting agent was either chemically or dual-polymerized. The shear bond strength was measured both before and after thermocycling. In addition, scanning electron microscope (SEM) observation, flexural strength test, and Knoop hardness test were performed. Results: Significant differences among the luting agents were observed in terms of bond strength and flexural strength. Significant differences between chemically and dual-polymerized luting agents were observed regarding shear bond strength, flexural strength, and Knoop hardness before thermocycling. The application of the priming agent was effective only for a luting agent. Conclusion: Both bond strength and flexural strength differed among three luting agents. The effect of the priming agent on bond strength differed among the luting agents. Both the bond and flexural strength of a chemically polymerized luting agent differed before or after thermocycling.
