The effect of tin oxide and calcium phosphate on the strength of adhesion of material for an artificial tooth primer coat to the metallic crown is considered. An alternative method for fast determination of the strength of adhesion of metal to ceramics using a Micro Scratch Tester instrument is based on depositing a scratch on a finished coating with a diamond indenter. It is found that the hydroxyapatite additive ensures the optimum adhesion.
