A 5-year report on an enamel-dentinal bonding agent and microfilled resin system
Ferrari / Bertelli / Finger
The aim of this study was to examine the clinical performance of the Gluma enamel dentinal bonding system and Pekalux microfilled composite resin. Sixty esthetic restorations wre placed by three different operators. After 5 years of clinical performance, 40 restorations were evaluated. Alpha scores were given to 25 restorations for marginal integrity, 21 for color stability, and 27 for anatomic form. Bravo scores wre given to 11 restorations for marginal integrity, 13 for color stability, and 10 for anatomic form. Six restorations had to be replaced. The results of this study reveal the importance of the periodoic maintenance of restorations; every patient was reexamined, underwent conservative restoration polishing, and attended an oral ghygiene session every 6 months.
