The purpose of this study was to evaluate the dentin bond strength to resin composite following erbium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Er:YAG) laser preparation using different adhesive systems. Seventy dentin specimens prepared from human molar teeth were randomly assigned to seven groups of ten. The first five groups were prepared with an Er:YAG laser 2940 nm at(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate dentin bond strength to resin composite following high-speed rotary or Er,Cr:YSGG laser preparation using two different adhesive systems. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and forty dentin specimens were prepared from human molars. Seventy specimens were prepared with a high-speed diamond bur(More)
PURPOSE This study determined the shear bond strength of a nanohybrid composite resin to bleached enamel immediately or 15 days later using different adhesive systems and laser application. METHODS One hundred and forty enamel specimens were prepared from human molar teeth and bleached either with 16% carbamide peroxide (CP) or 30% CP according to the(More)
This study evaluated the two-year clinical performance of two minimally invasive cavity preparation techniques, bur and laser, in Class I occlusal resin composite restorations. Twenty-seven patients, each having at least one pair of occlusal caries, were enrolled in this study. For each patient, one of the cavities was prepared with a diamond bur, and the(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this in vitro study was to compare the microleakage of direct composite veneer restorations prepared by a conventional dental bur or Er,Cr:YSGG (erbium, chromium doped yttrium scandium gallium garnet) laser and etched with different procedures. METHODS Fifty maxillary incisor teeth prepared for direct veneers with gingival margins in(More)
AIM This in vitro study evaluated the effect of different cavity disinfection agents on bond strength of a silorane-based resin composite. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-six caries-free human third mandibular molars sectioned in mesio-distal direction were mounted in acrylic resin with their flat dentin surfaces exposed. After the dentin surfaces were wet(More)
The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the shear bond strength (SBS) of Silorane System Adhesive to enamel and dentin surfaces that had been etched with different procedures. Ninety freshly extracted human third molars were used for the study. After the teeth were embedded with buccal surfaces facing up, they were randomly divided into two groups.(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the clinical performance of a pit and fissure sealant placed with the use of different enamel preparation methods, i.e. acid or Er,Cr:YSGG laser etching, over 24 months. METHODS Sixteen subjects (15 female, 1 male) with no restorations or sealant present on their fissures and no detectable caries participated. Using a table of random(More)
