Dentin bonding vs. enamel bonding of composite restorations: a clinical evaluation.


The effect of dentinal bonding of composite resins was compared with that of enamel bonding. Two operators placed 192 composite resin restorations using enamel bonding or dentinal bonding on the two types of resin chosen for the study. Patients were recalled at the end of one year and two years. The restorations were evaluated clinically in the following categories: color match, cavo-surface discoloration, anatomical form, marginal adaptation, and recurrent caries. It was concluded for the evaluations that dentin bonding is not as effective as enamel bonding in protecting the composite restoration against cavo-surface discoloration and deterioration in marginal adaptation.
