Monkey pulpal responses to resin-bonded indirect resin composite inlays were histopathologically evaluated by placing them in either etched-enamel, total-etched, or adhesive-resin-lined cavities. Initial pulpal responses caused by re-exposure of the cut dentin surfaces and luting procedure subsided if a tight marginal seal was secured by final cementation of the inlay. The adhesive resin coating of freshly cut dentinal walls/floors seems to provide a new technique to protect the dentin and pulp in indirect restorations requiring temporary sealing.
