OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the one-year clinical performance of three restorative systems, which included a novel low-shrinkage composite and two bonding strategies. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-five patients received three Class I (occlusal) or Class II restorations performed with one of three restorative systems: Filtek Silorane(More)
The objective of this study was to compare the 5-year clinical performance in posterior restorations of three restorative systems including a low-shrinkage system and a methacrylate-based composite combined either with an etch-and-rinse or a self-etch adhesive. Each of 25 patients received three class I (occlusal) or class II restorations performed with(More)

The purpose of this study was to determine the micro-tensile bond strength (MTBS) to dentin of seven adhesive systems (total and self-etch adhesives) after 24 h and 5,000 thermocycles. Dentin surfaces of human third molars were exposed and bonded with two total-etch adhesives (Adper Scotchbond 1 XT and XP Bond), two two-step self-etch adhesives (Adper(More)
BACKGROUND No specific indications about the pre-treatment of indirect composite restorations is provided by the manufacturers of most self-adhesive resin cements. The potential effect of silane treatment to the bond strength of the complete tooth/indirect restoration complex is not available.The aim of this study was to determine the contribution of(More)
