OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to assess the influence of pretreating enamel by different rotary instruments on shear-bond strength of composite to enamel after the acid etch technique. METHODS Ninety human enamel specimens with transversely and longitudinally sectioned prisms were ground flat, and half of the enamel area of each specimen was prepared with one of the eight different rotary instruments: a 120 microns diamond bur, three finishing diamonds (30, 15 and 8 microns), two… CONTINUE READING
