Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine enamel and dentin bond strengths of a nonrinsing ’all-in-one’ adhesive and of a nonrinsing conditioner combined with a 1-bottle adhesive. Method and materials: Specimens were obtained from 240 bovine teeth ground to expose enamel or dentin surfaces. Ten enamel and 10 dentin specimens were randomly assigned to each of 12 different combinations of adhesive system (Prompt L-Pop; no etch + Prime & Bond NT; NRC + Prime & Bond NT; 36% phosphoric acid + Prime & Bond NT; no etch + Prime & Bond 2.1; 36% phosphoric acid + Prime & Bond 2.1) and restorative material (resin composite; polyacid-modified resin composite [’compomer’]). After the application of the adhesive system, a No. 5 gelatin capsule filled with the restorative material was seated against the enamel or dentin surface. After 24 hours in distilled water at 37°C, the specimens were thermocycled and the shear bond strengths were measured. Results: For resin composite, etching with phosphoric acid resulted in the highest bond strengths to enamel. For compomer, the highest enamel bond strengths were achieved with both phosphoric acid and Prompt L-Pop. Treating dentin with Prime & Bond NT without etching provided the highest mean bond strength for composite. For compomer, treating dentin with Prime & Bond NT resulted in the highest mean bond strengths, regardless of the conditioner. Conclusion: Compomer and resin composite exhibited statistically similar bond strengths. Bond strengths to dentin were significantly lower than those to enamel.
