Effects of Drying Agents on Bond Strength of Etch-and-Rinse Adhesive Systems to Enamel Immediately after Bleaching

Purpose: To determine the effect of drying agents and adhesive solvents on the bond strength of resin composite to enamel immediately after bleaching.
Material and Methods: Sixty healthy human premolars were bleached using 15% carbamide peroxide gel and randomly divided into three groups according to the immersing solutions applied immediately after bleaching: 70% alcohol, acetone, and distilled water. Each group was randomly divided into two subgroups according to the adhesives that were applied: an alcohol-based adhesive (Single Bond) and an acetone-based adhesive (One Step). By using rubber washers, composite Z100 was placed onto the enamel and shear bond strength was evaluated in a universal testing machine at a crosshead speed of 1 mm/min. The type of failure was also assessed using a stereomicroscope. The data were statistically analyzed by two-way ANOVA and Tukey’s post-hoc test (α = 0.05). Fisher’s Exact test was used to evaluate differences in the failure modes.
Results: Statistical analysis showed that the bond strength of the distilled water groups was significantly lower than that of the other groups, but the bond strengths of the two groups where a drying agent was applied were similar to that of the unbleached group. The acetone-based adhesive (One Step) provided higher bond strength than did the alcohol-based adhesive (Single Bond) (p < 0.05). There was no interaction between the two variables (p > 0.05). Fisher’s Exact test showed there was no significant difference in the failure mode of all the experimental groups (p > 0.05).
Conclusion: The application of drying agents improves the bond strength of resin composite to bleached enamel. Furthermore, the acetone-based adhesive used in the study had a higher bond strength to bleached enamel than did the alcohol-based adhesive used.
