Bonding performance of a newly developed step-less all-in-one system on dentin.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the short-term µTBS (Micro-tensile bond strength) and microscopic (SEM and TEM) observation of four recent adhesives. One adhesive was an experimentalExpand

Effect of air-drying and solvent evaporation on the strength of HEMA-rich versus HEMA-free one-step adhesives.
OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were (1) to clarify the relationship between the duration of air-drying of one-step self-etch adhesives (1-SEAs) and the evaporation degree (ED) of solvents,Expand

Colour and translucency of opaque-shades and body-shades of resin composites.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the optical properties--not only the translucency but also the colours--of opaque-shade resin composites. The CIELAB parameters (L*, a* and b*) of disks ofExpand
