Purpose: To test the bond strength of one-piece zirconia implants with either standard or reduced height using different luting agents and pretreatments of the ceramic crowns’ inner surfaces. Materials and Methods: Twenty monolithic CAD/CAM–fabricated zirconia single crowns were cemented onto 10 one-piece zirconia implants with either 5-mm or 4-mm abutment height (Z-Look3 Evo SLM, Z-Systems) using 13 different luting agents. After water storage, the crowns were removed using a specially developed test fixture in a universal testing machine (Z010, Zwick/Roell). The maximum force was recorded (N), and the force per area was calculated (MPa). The statistical evaluation was performed using univariate analysis of variance (SPSS version 25.0, IBM). Results: A mean of 4.19 MPa (SD 2.90) at 5 mm and 3.89 MPa (SD 2.85) at 4 mm was obtained for all luting agents. The highest values were achieved for a resinmodified glass-ionomer cement, with 12.37 MPa (4 mm)/12.00 MPa (5mm). The lowest values were shown for a long-term temporary material, with 0.73 MPa (4 mm)/1.07 MPa (5 mm). Only a polycarboxylate cement (P < .001) and a glass-ionomer cement (P = .006) showed statistically significant differences, in favor of the reduced abutment height. The latter did not significantly reduce bond strength for any of the materials examined. Conclusion: Implants with a reduced abutment height are clinically suitable. Pretreatment of the crowns’ inner surfaces with ceramic primer showed to be advantageous.
