ABSTRACT This study determined the shear bond strength of a nanohybrid composite resin to bleached enamel immediately or 15 days later using different adhesive systems and laser application.
One hundred and forty enamel specimens were prepared from human molar teeth and bleached either with 16% carbamide peroxide (CP) or 30% CP according to the manufacturer's (Vivastyle/Vivadent) recommendations. After bleaching treatments specimens were divided into two groups according to the treatment time of the adhesive procedures: immediately or 15 days after the bleaching treatments. The four groups were then divided into five subgroups due to the surface treatments: using a two-step self-etching adhesive (AdheSe, Ivoclar Vivadent G, Schaan, Liechtenstein) or a two-step etch and rinse adhesive (Excite, Ivoclar Vivadent G, Schaan, Liechtenstein) and application of laser prior to adhesive procedures or not. After adhesive procedures nanohybrid composite resin cylinders of 4 mm x 2 mm (Tetric Evo Ceram/Vivadent) were bonded to the enamel surfaces. All specimens were subjected to shear bond strength test after thermocycling and 24h of storage in water. Data were analyzed statistically.
Mann-Whitney U-test analysis showed no significant difference in the mean bond strength values of enamel bleached with either 16% CP or 30% CP (p>0.05). There was no difference between the groups bonded immediately or 15 days after bleaching (p>0.05). Application of the etch and rinse adhesive after 15 days showed the highest bond strength values, whereas self-etching adhesive and laser application showed the lowest values in both bleaching treatments.
The results suggested that following the bleaching treatments, the use of etch and rinse adhesive system may provide higher bond strengths than self-etching adhesive and laser application.

    ABSTRACT: Aim This in vitro study was undertaken to investigate the effects of pre- and post-simulated bleaching procedures with 10% carbamide peroxide on the shear bond strengths of different adhesives to enamel and to determine the failure modes of tested specimens. Materials and methods The specimens were randomly divided into three groups (n = 30) according to the sequence of bleaching and bonding procedures (control non-bleach, pre- and post-bleach groups). Each group was then subdivided into three subgroups (n = 10) according to the three types of adhesives: OptiBond Solo Plus (Kerr) and Single Bond Universal (3M-ESPE) used as etch-and-rinse and self-etch techniques. Resin composite cylinders were then placed with Filtek Z 250 (3M ESPE). The specimens were stored in distilled water at 37 °C for 24 hours prior to being thermocycled for 1000 cycles (at 5 and 55 °C). The samples in the pre- and post-bleach groups were also immersed daily in artificial saliva at 37 °C, and for two weeks after completion of the bleaching process. Shear bond strengths were measured with a cross-head speeds of 0.5 mm/min. Failure modes of debonded specimens were determined by stereomicroscopy (30×). The interface margins of resin composite to the different enamel conditions were observed by scanning electron microscopy (1000×) before shear bond strength testing. Results There were no significant effects of different enamel conditions (control non-bleach, pre-bleach and post-bleach) on the shear bond strengths of OptiBond Solo Plus Adhesive Agent or etch-and-rinse Single Bond Universal Adhesive Agent. Pre- and post-simulated home bleaching of enamel with 10% carbamide peroxide had an adverse effect on the shear bond strengths of self-etch Single Bond Universal Adhesive Agent. Conclusion In enamel, an etch-and-rinse approach with phosphoric acid remains the procedure of choice, since it guarantees the most durable bond to enamel. Therefore, selective phosphoric-acid-etching of enamel is highly recommended, followed by self-etching.

    ABSTRACT: Aim This review article will help clinicians improve their understanding of the history of bleaching procedures, bleaching types, components, mechanisms, and their effects on soft tissue, tooth structures, resin composite, and bonding. Methods The controversial issues about bleaching procedures and their effects are reviewed. Additionally, the consequences of pre- and post-bleaching on the bonding potential of composite resin restorations to tooth structure are discussed. Conclusion The overall goal of the paper is to help reduce risks for patients.

    ABSTRACT: Background and objective:Enamel irradiation with an erbium,chromium:yttrium-scandiumgallium-garnet (Er,Cr:YSGG) laser has been reported to cause micromorphological alterations within resin-enamel interfaces and subsurface enamel. The present study was conducted to evaluate the effects of different output power/pulse repetition rate parameter combinations of Er,Cr:YSGG laser on the micromorphology of resin-enamel interfaces and subsurface enamel. Materials and methods: Thirty-five bovine incisors were used in the present study. Er,Cr:YSGG laser was used on enamel with different output power/pulse repetition rate parameter combinations as follows: 6 W/20 Hz, 6 W/35 Hz, 6 W/50 Hz, 3 W/20 Hz, 3 W/35 Hz, 3 W/50 Hz. Following adhesive and composite procedures, specimens were sectioned and either acid-etched with 37% phosphoric acid for 1 min or immersed in 55% nitric acidfor 12 h. Then the resin-enamel interfaces were investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Results: Micromorphological findings by SEM revealed that when enamel surfaces were irradiated with all 6-W groups and 3 W/20 Hz-combinations, large resin structures indicating subsurface microcracks were generally evident within interfaces and subsurface enamel. However, when irradiated with 3 W/35 Hz and 3 W/50 Hz-combinations, the observed resinenamel interfaces were similar to those of the acid-etched only group. Conclusion: Deploying Er,Cr:YSGG laser with lower power and high pulse repetition rate combinations may reduce damage to resin-enamel interfaces and subsurface enamel. However, assessment of the relationship between these findings and bond strength requires further study.
