Abstract This study compared the shear bond strength of four filled dentin bonding agents (Prime & Bond NT, One Coat Bond, OptiBond Solo, PermaQuik1) to a conventional unfilled Dentin Bonding agent (3M Scotchbond Multipurpose Plus). A column of composite resin (Herculite XRV Restorative Resin) was bonded to human dentin using the five dentin-bonding systems following the manufacturers' directions. The specimens were thermocycled 1000 cycles from 6 to 60 degrees C. Each specimen was tested on an MTS machine in shear-to-failure. The data were subjected to One-Factor ANOVA and Newman-Kuels post-hoc tests. Statistical analysis revealed that One Coat Bond had significantly greater shear bond strength than all other materials tested.
