OBJECTIVE The study aimed to analyze the shear bond strength of aged silorane composite repaired with the same substrate or a conventional methacrylate-based composite after different mechanical and adhesive surface treatments. METHODS Silorane composite specimens were aged by thermal cycling (5000 cycles, 5-55 °C) and randomly assigned to different surface treatments (each group n=16): diamond bur abrasion, aluminum oxide sandblasting, silica coating, or hydrofluoric acid etching. Then, an… CONTINUE READING
