OBJECTIVE The effects of time, surface preparation, and use of a bonding agent on the ability to bond amalgam or resin composite to amalgam were studied. METHOD AND MATERIALS Cylindrical amalgam specimens were prepared in a split die (32 groups of 10 each). The 32 groups were divided into two groups of 16 each: amalgam bonded to amalgam and resin composite bonded to amalgam. One half of each group of 16 was bonded within 1 hour after the initial condensation (fresh) and the other half was… CONTINUE READING
