OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical long-term retention to dentin of seven adhesive systems. METHODS: A total of 337 Class V restorations of three three-step etch-and-rinse, one two-step etch-and-rinse and three self-etch adhesive systems were placed in non-carious cervical lesions without intentional enamel involvement. The restorations were evaluated at baseline and then every 6 months during a 13 years follow-up. Dentin bonding efficiency was determined by the percentage of lost restorations. RESULTS: During the 13 years, 275 restorations could be evaluated. The cumulative loss rate at 13 years was 60.3%, with significant different failures rates for the different systems varying between 26.3 and 94.7%. Three materials fulfilled the ADA 18 months full acceptance criteria. Three systems showed already at 18 months or earlier catastrophical debonding rates. The annual failure rates for the three-step etch-and-rinse systems were: Allbond 2 4.1%, Clearfil LB 2.0% and Denthesive 7.3%. For the two-step etch-and-rinse Gluma 2000 6.5%, and for the self-etch systems ART 3.2%, Denthesive 2 5.7% and PUB 3 4.5% CONCLUSION: A continuous degradation of the resin-dentin bond was observed for all bonding systems during the follow-up expressed by the increasing loss rates. A wide variation of dentin bonding effectiveness was seen between the systems independent to adhesion strategy.
