Dentin to dentin adhesion using combinations of resin cements and adhesives from different manufacturers – a novel approach -

The aims of this study were to present a novel method to analyse dentin bond strength and to evaluate the bond strength of combining adhesive systems and resin cement from different manufacturers. Based on the results and within the limitations of this laboratory study, it can be concluded that using alternating combinations of resin cement
and adhesives seem possible and that the resin cement were the weakest components in the bonded dentin-adhesive-cement-complex.

Silanising agents promote resin-composite repair -

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of silane in the repair of old and new resin-composite restorations.

Role of bonding agents in the repair of composite resin restorations -

Six commonly used composite resin materials and recommended bonding systems were tested to assess shear bond strength at the interface between aged and new composites with and without bonding. Test specimens were aged in water for 60 d before new composite was placed.

Comparison of Different Etching Agents and Repair Materials Used on Feldspathic Porcelain -

When fractures of fixed partial dentures occur, they cause an aesthetic and functional dilemma both for the patient and the dentist. Re-make of the entire restoration is an option, but not always desirable. The aim of this study was to test the shear bond strength due to four different etching agents for ceramic repair.

An in vitro comparison of the shear bond strength of a resin-reinforced glass ionomer cement and a composite adhesive for bonding orthodontic brackets -

The shear bond strength (SBS) of a light-cured, resin-reinforced glass ionomer and a composite adhesive in combination with a self-etching primer was compared after different setting times to evaluate when orthodontic wires could be placed. Additionally, the fracture site after debonding was assessed using the Adhesive Remnant Index (ARI).
