ABSTRACT This study evaluated the immediate and 6-month resin-dentin micro-bond strength (microTBS) of one-step self-etch systems (Adper Prompt L-Pop [AD] 3M ESPE; Xeno III [XE] Dentsply De Trey; iBond [iB] Heraeus Kulzer) under different application modes.
Dentin oclusal surfaces were exposed by grinding with 600-grit SiC paper. The adhesives were applied according to the manufacturer's directions [MD], or with double application of the adhesive layer [DA] or following the manufacturer's directions plus a hydrophobic resin layer coating [HL]. After applying the adhesive resins, composite crowns were built up incrementally. After 24-h water storage, the specimens were serially sectioned in "x" and "y" directions to obtain bonded sticks of about 0.8mm2 to be tested immediately [IM] or after 6 months of water storage [6M] at a crosshead speed of 0.5mm/min. The data from each adhesive was analyzed by a two-way repeated measures ANOVA (mode of application vs. storage time) and Tukey's test (alpha=0.05).
The adhesives performed differently according to the application mode. The DA and HL either improved the immediate performance of the adhesive or did not differ from the MD. The resin-dentin bond strength values observed after 6 months were higher when a hydrophobic resin coat was used than compared to those values observed under the manufacturer's directions.
The double application of one-step self-etch system can be safety performed however the application of an additional hydrophobic resin layer can improve the immediate resin-dentin bonds and reduce the degradation of resin bonds over time.

    ABSTRACT: This study evaluated the effect of prolonged polymerization times on the microtensile resin-dentin bond strength (μTBS), degree of conversion of adhesive films (DC) and silver nitrate uptake (SNU) for an ethanol/water- (Adper Single Bond 2, [SB]) and an acetone-based (One Step Plus, [OS]) etch-and-rinse adhesive. Thirty caries-free extracted molars were included in this study. The occlusal enamel of all teeth was removed by wet grinding the occlusal enamel on 180-grit SiC paper. Adhesives were applied according to the manufacturer's instructions, but they were light cured for 10, 20 and 40 s at 600 mW/cm2. Bonded sticks (0.6 mm2) were tested in tension (0.5 mm/min). Two bonded sticks from each tooth were immersed in an ammoniacal solution of silver nitrate (24 h), photodeveloped (8 h), and analyzed by SEM. The DC of the adhesives was evaluated under Fourier Transformed Infra-Red spectroscopy (FTIR). Data for each property were analyzed by two-way ANOVA and Tukey's test (α = 0.05). Statistically higher μTBS and DC were observed for SB and OS when both adhesives were light cured for 40 s in comparison with 10 s. For OS, the μTBS in the 20- and 40-s groups did not differ statistically, while for SB it did. Higher prolonged exposure times did not prevent nanoleakage within the hybrid layer for all groups regardless of the adhesive. This study supports the hypothesis that exposure times longer than those recommended can improve the degree of conversion of adhesive films and the immediate resin-dentin bonds. The prolonged curing times (20 and 40 s) for polymerization of simplified adhesives resulted in an increase in the degree of conversion of the adhesive films and resin-dentin bond strengths but did not reduce the nanoleakage within the hybrid layer.

    ABSTRACT: To test the long-term in vitro bonding performance of "all-in-one" self-etch adhesives to dentine. Adper Prompt (3M ESPE), Bond Force (Tokuyama), Brush & Bond (Parkell), iBond Self Etch (Heraeus Kulzer), OptiBond All-In-One (Kerr), and Xeno IV (Dentsply Caulk) were tested. The two-step self-etch adhesive Clearfil SE Bond (Kuraray) served as the control. Extracted human teeth were assigned to groups after creation of smear layer on occlusal dentine. Adhesives were applied according to manufacturers' instructions, and resin composite (Filtek Z250, 3M ESPE) build-ups were placed. The bonded specimens were sectioned into beams after 24h of storage in water. Microtensile bond strengths (μTBS) was determined at baseline, and following one and two years of water storage using an EZ-Test device (Shimadzu). Representative specimens were examined under field emission scanning electron microscope. Fracture mode was recorded. The data were analyzed using linear mixed effects and least square means analyses. The significance level was set at 0.01 for the pairwise comparisons and at 0.05 for the overall model effects. The mean μTBS decreased significantly over time for Adper Prompt, iBond Self Etch, and OptiBond All-In-One. After two years of water ageing, Bond Force, Brush & Bond, OptiBond All-In-One, and Xeno IV had mean μTBS values not statistically different from Clearfil SE Bond. After two years of water ageing, Clearfil SE Bond outperformed two of six all-in-one adhesives. That indicates that the composition of the adhesives rather than their application approach is accountable for their performance. Despite the data available suggesting that most all-in-one adhesives are severely affected by hydrolytic degradation, results of the present in vitro study suggest that some may perform as well as the clinically proven Clearfil SE Bond in the longer term.

    ABSTRACT: SUMMARY The incorporation of hydrophilic and acidic resin monomers substantially improved the initial bonding of contemporary etch-and-rinse (ER) and self-etch (SE) adhesives to intrinsically wet dental substrates, providing quite favorable immediate results, regardless of the bonding approach used. However, in the long term, the bonding effectiveness of most simplified ER and SE adhesives drop dramatically. This review examines the fundamental processes that are responsible for the aging mechanisms involved in the degradation of the resin-bonded interfaces and some possible clinical approaches that have been effective in minimizing or even preventing the degradation of the adhesive interfaces produced with simplified adhesives. The incorporation of some of the feasible approaches - described in this review - may improve the quality of the adhesive restorations performed in clinical practice, while manufacturers develop bonding materials that are less susceptible to the aging mechanisms present in the oral environment.
