Context: Bond strength of fiber posts. Aims: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of different Post Surface treatment techniques on the push-out bond strength of the quartz fiber posts. Subjects and Methods: A total of 30 maxillary central incisors were decoronated at cementoenamel junction. Root canals were filled and postspaces were prepared. The specimens were classified into three groups according to the surface treatment performed to the postsurface (n = 10) as no surface treatment (control group) (Group 1), A 50-μm aluminum-oxide airborne-particle abrasion group (Group 2), femtosecond laser (FS) group (Group 3). A self-curing adhesive cement was used for cementation of posts. Six sections (two coronal, two middle, and two apical) of 1-mm thickness specimens were prepared with a slow speed diamond saw. Specimens were stored in distilled water at 37°C for 24 h. Then, push-out test was performed on a universal testing machine. Results: The data were analyzed by one-way ANOVA (α = 0.05). The test results indicated that push-out test values significantly different according to surface treatments among groups (P < 0.05). There were no significant differences between root sections of each group for bond strength (P > 0.05). All dislodged Group 3 posts were free of cement, indicating adhesive failure, Group 1 and 2 were partially coated with cement, indicating a mixed failure at the cement/postsurface. Conclusions: Based on the results, aluminum-oxide airborne-particle abrasion group showed higher and FS irradiation group showed lower bond strength values. Push-out bond strength values of the root segments were the same in all groups.
