Abstract

This study was designed to evaluate effects of light-irradiated intensities directly and indirectly through resin composites to one- and two-step self-etch adhesives on dentin bonding. One-step (Clearfil S-3 Bond; TS, Bond Force; BF) or two-step (Clearfil SE Bond; SE) self-etch adhesives was applied to dentin surface. The adhesive agent was light-cured with light-intensity of 350 or 600 mW/cm(2), and then resin composite with different colors (translucent or opaque shade) was filled and light-cured with the same light-intensity as the bonding procedure. After 24 h water storage, bond strengths to dentin were determined using mu TBS test. For the 600 and 350 mW/cm(2) groups, translucent shade resin obtained higher mu TBS than opaque shade resin. Using SE and BF, the 350 mW/cm(2) group in translucent shade resin was higher mu TBS than the 600 mW/cm(2) group in opaque shade resin, while TS showed no different mu TBS between them.
