In this work, TiSiN coatings were selected to improve the adhesion between dental ceramic and CoCr substrate. The coatings were prepared by the cathodic arc technique in N2 reactive atmosphere, at different bias voltages, and analyzed for elemental composition, surface roughness, wettability and corrosion resistance in Fusayama Meyer artificial saliva. After the coating deposition, low-fusing dental ceramic film was fired on coated alloy, using a dental furnace. The bond strength of these specimens was tested using a 3-point bending test.
