Purpose: To assess the shear bond strength of composite resin to polyether ether ketone (PEEK) after mechanical and chemical surface treatments. Materials and Methods: A total of 48 PEEK discs were fabricated and divided equally into four surface treatment groups (n = 12 each): (1) airborne particle abrasion with 50-μm alumina particles at 2 MPa pressure for 10 seconds; (2) 98% sulfuric acid etching for 1 minute; (3) airborne particle abrasion and sulfuric acid etching; and (4) no surface treatment. Specimens were conditioned, then Gradia composite veneer (GC) was applied to the PEEK surfaces and polymerized. Bond strength was measured with shear bond test using a universal testing machine. One-way analysis of variance and Tukey post hoc tests were applied for statistical analysis. Results: The mean shear bond strength values of the sulfuric acid–etched group were higher than that of the airborne particle abrasion + acid etching, airborne particle abrasion, and control groups (P < .05). Mean shear bond strength values for the airborne particle abrasion + acid etching samples were higher than for the control and airborne particle abrasion groups (P < .05). Conclusion: There was no significant difference between the samples treated with airborne particle abrasion and the control group.
