This in, vitro study evaluated the effects of simplified ethanol-wet bonding technique on dentin bonding durability of two etch-and-rinse adhesives to bovine dentin. Sixteen freshly extracted bovine incisors were divided into four groups according to bonding technique (water-wet or ethanol-wet bonding) and adhesive (Single Bond 2 or Prime & Bond NT). After etching and rinsing, dentin surfaces were left either water-moist or immersed in ethanol. Following adhesive application and composite build-up, bonded teeth were sectioned into sticks for microtensile bond strength (mu TBS) testing conducted after 24-h and 12-month water storage. There were no significant differences in bond strength among the groups at 24 h. At 12 months, the bond strengths of adhesives to dentin were significantly decreased (p<0.05). Simplified ethanol-wet bonding did not improve the resin-dentin bonding durability of tested etch-and-rinse adhesives.
