Dual-cured etch-and-rinse adhesive systems increase the bond durability of direct coronal dentin restorations.


This study aimed to evaluate the bond durability of dentin restorations bonded with light- or dual-cured etch-and-rinse adhesive systems. A three-step adhesive system (Scotchbond Multipurpose Plus), an acetone-based two-step adhesive system (Prime & Bond 2.1), and an ethanol-based two-step adhesive system (Excite) were tested. Both the light- and the dual… (More)
