Abstract

Smear-layer debris was sonicated from dentine surfaces and trapped on microfilters for microscopy, which showed that the layers are composed, in part, of aggregates of globular subunits approx. 0.05-0.1 μm in diameter. Such globules were also seen in smear layers in situ and on fractured dentine surfaces. The composition of smear layers may reflect the substructure of dentine matrix.
