Abstract

This study evaluated the effect of primer on shear bond strength and marginal gaps of six new compomers immediately after light-activation. A resin-modified glass ionomer cement, a conventional glass-ionomer cement and a microfilled composite were used for comparison. The marginal gap widths of each of the four compomers and a microfilled composite used with the primer were significantly smaller compared with those used without the primer. The bond strength values of five compomers used with the primer were significantly higher than those used without the primer. The bond strength of conventional glass-ionomer was not affected by the primer (or the conditioner).
