Influence of self-etching primer on the resin adhesion to enamel and dentin.

PURPOSE To evaluate the shear bond strength of resin-based composite to dentin and enamel using three adhesive systems, two of them containing self-etchant primers. Wettability (contact angle measurements) of the primers of these three adhesive systems was also evaluated on superficial and deep dentin. MATERIAL AND METHODS Contact angle measurements were… (More)
