Share Abstract:

The Effect of Dentin Primer on the Tensile Bond Strength to Human Enamel


Pages: 403-409
PMID: 7802907

Four third-generation dentin bonding products (Scotchbond Multi-Purpose, Optibond, All-Bond 2, and Prisma Universal Bond 3) were tested to evaluate their tensile bond strength to enamel. Test enamel specimens were etched, primed, and polymerized according to each manufacturer’s directions. Control specimens were treated identically except the primer application was eliminated. The results demonstrated that the dentin primer significantly increased the tensile bond strength of All-Bond 2, significantly decreased the tensile bond strength of Scotchbond Multi-Purpose and Optibond, and had no significant effect for Prisma Universal Bond 3. A one-way analysis of variance was run between the eight groups tested, and three significant subsets were found (P < .05). The subset with the highest mean tensile bond strengths consisted of Prisma Universal Bond 3 primed and nonprimed, All-Bond 2 primed, and Optibond nonprimed.
