OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the microtensile bond strength of one-step self-etching adhesives to dentin in vitro. METHODS: Three commercially available one-step self-etching bonding systems (group A: Adper Prompt, group B: Clearfil S(3) Bond, group C: Xeno III) were compared with two-step self-etching adhesive (group D: Clearfil SE Bond) in this study. The microtensile bond strength was determined with microtensile tester and the fractured bonding surfaces were observed under stereomicroscope and scanning electronic microscope (SEM). The mean bond strengths were analyzed using one-way ANOVA test (P < 0.05). RESULTS: Mean microtensile bond strengths of group C, B, A and D were (34.59 +/- 3.46), (30.46 +/- 3.82), (23.36 +/- 2.55) and (45.06 +/- 5.29) MPa, respectively. Group D showed the highest bond strength (P < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Two-step self-etching adhesive had a higher bond strength than one-step self-etching adhesive systems, although all of them can satisfy the clinical requirements.
