OBJECTIVE This study investigated the effect of phosphoric acid concentration on microshear bond strength (μSBS) of an etch-and-rinse adhesive system to demineralized irradiated enamel. BACKGROUND DATA Er:YAG laser irradiation may increase acid resistance of enamel; however, its use is associated with reduced bonding effectiveness. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three experimental etching agents and one bonding agent were fabricated. Enamel pretreatment was tested in two levels (bur and laser) and… CONTINUE READING
