Table 3 Microtensile bond strength means and standard deviation (±SD) for dentin and resin composite

From: Bond strength of a universal bonding agent and other contemporary dental adhesives applied on enamel, dentin, composite, and porcelain

Substrate SBMP SB CLSE SBU Positive control Negative control
Dentin 35.4ab (±10.5) 39.4a (±11.2) 36.6ab (±10.9) 28.1b (±13.7) 26.9b (±7.4)   
Resin composite      28.4a (±9.9) 29.5a (±11.7) 12.1b (±8.7)
  1. SBMP: Scotchbond Multipurpose; SB: Single Bond 2; CLSE: Clearfil SE Bond; SBU: Single Bond Universal; SE: self-etch technique; ER: etch-and-rinse technique; Positive control: Silane plus SB; Negative control: no treatment.
  2. Distinct letters in the same row indicate statistically significant differences (p < 0.05).
