Abstract

Purpose: This study compared the microtensile bond strengths (mu TBS) of two different self-etching (SE) and etch-and-rinse (ER) adhesive systems to enamel affected by hypoplastic amelogenesis imperfecta (HPAI) and analyzed the enamel etching patterns created by the two adhesive systems using scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
