Abstract

Objectives: To evaluate the microtensile bond strengths of different resin composites used as core materials around fiber posts. Methods: Forty DT Light-Posts (RTD) were randomly divided into eight groups, according to the resin composite used. They included two core materials specifically developed for core build-up-Group 1: Core-Flo (Bisco Inc.) and Group 2: UniFil Core (GC Corp.); three hybrid composites-Group 3: Tetric Ceram (Ivoclar-Vivadent), Group 4: Gradia Direct (GC Corp.), Group 5: Bisfil 2B (Bisco, Inc.); and three flowable composites-Group 6: Æliteflo (Bisco, Inc.), Group 7: Filtek Flow (3M ESPE) and Group 8: UniFil Flow (GC Corp). A cylindrical plastic matrix was placed around the silanized post and filled with the respective resin composite. Each bonded post provided five to eight sticks for microtensile testing. Each stick was loaded to failure under tension at a cross-head speed of 0.5 mm/min. One-way ANOVA and Tukey's test were used for statistical analysis. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used to evaluate the interface of the fractured sticks. Results: Resin composites exhibited a significant influence on microtensile bond strength (p < 0.05). Core-Flo showed the highest bond strength (11.00 ± 0.69 MPa) although it was not statistically significantly different from all groups, except from the flowable composites. Under SEM, all the composites adapted well to the fiber post, with a variable extent of voids observed along the fractured composite interfaces. Significance: Although good adaptation to the post surface was achieved, bond strength to fiber post remains relatively weak. Core build-up and hybrid composites are better alternatives to flowable composites as core build-up materials.
