Although resin composite restorations may undergo relatively extreme temperature changes in the oral cavity, little is known about the effects of temperature on their adhesion to tooth structure. This study evaluated the effect of temperature on shear bond strength to dentin of three commercial resin dentin adhesives through testing of matured specimens over the 20° to 55°C temperature range. A significant difference (p<0.05) was observed between 20°C and 55°C for all the materials, and for one of the materials, a significant difference was also observed between 20°C and 37°C.
