The effect of resin infiltration and oxidative pre-treatment on microshear bond strength of resin composite to hypomineralised enamel.

BACKGROUND Reduced bond strengths of resin composites to hypomineralised enamel increase restorative failure. AIM To investigate if the adhesion of resin composite to hypomineralised enamel can be improved by pre-treatments: resin infiltration, oxidative pre-treatment followed by a resin infiltration, or oxidative pre-treatment. DESIGN Twenty-one enamel… CONTINUE READING
