A randomised controlled trial of a nanofilled composite at three years: Did selective enamel etching have an effect?

Abstract

ABSTRACT
General dental practice is increasingly being recognised as the ideal situation for the conduct of clinical trials into the longevity of restorations. The aim of this study was to investigate the survival of 75 nanofilled resin composite restorations placed in an assortment of cavities using a self-etch dentine bonding agent, in five UK dental practices by members of the UK-based practice-based research group, the PREP Panel, with half of
the restorations receiving a selective enamel etch and the other half being placed using a self-etching approach. The results indicated good performance of the restorations examined, with no failures being identified and excellent surface characteristics, in terms of colour stability, minimal surface roughness and optimal anatomic form, Selective enamel etching tended to produce less marginal discolouration, although these results were not statistically significant.
