Paper Abstract

This study compares bond shear strength between hard dental tissues and composite resin filling material after a classical acid etching treatment procedure and Er:YAG laser surface conditioning. The retention of composite resin was evaluated for three cases: (1) the flat dental substrate without any conditioning, (2) the classical drilling machine prepared surface with acid etching and (3) the Er:YAG laser conditioning of enamel and dentin. None significant differences between bond shear strength of the classical drilling machine prepared surface with acid etching in comparison with the laser radiation conditioning were found.
