Abstract

Purpose

To evaluate the effect of saliva contamination on the shear bond strength of composite resin to enamel by using different parameters.

Materials and methods

The highest mean shear bond strength of composite resin was obtained on the uncontami- nated enamel surface, and the lowest mean shear bond strength was obtained on the saliva contaminated moist enamel surface.

Results

The mean shear bond strength of composite resin to saliva contaminated, washed and air-dried enamel surface was less than the mean shear bond strength to the dry enamel surface.

Conclusion

This suggests that only rewashing of the saliva contaminated enamel surface is not enough in achieving bond strength equal to that of the uncontaminated enamel surface.
