Self-etch adhesives are introduced in clinical practice with the aim of eliminating nanoleakage, avoiding of wetbond technique and reducing the numerous bonding steps. There are two kinds of self-etch adhesives available on the market today: those that are applied in one and in two steps.

The aim of this study was to compare the effect of two self-etch adhesives: Prompt L Pop (Self-etch Primer-Bonding agent-one step) and AdheSE (Self-etch Primer-Bonding agent-two steps) an the quality of Class III composite fillings.

Composite filling material used in this study was Tetric Ceram Ivoclar Vivadent.

The sample in this study comprises 60 Class III composite fillings, placed in children aged 12-16 years. Out of these, in 30 cases Prompt L Pop 3M ESPE was applied, and in the other 30 fillings, AdheSE Ivoclar Vivadent was used.

For the evaluation of composite fillings USPHS criteria were used (A ideal; B-acceptable; C-unacceptable) for following paramaters: postoperative sensitivity, color match, marginal discoloration, marginal adaptation, anatomic form and recurrent caries. The evaluations were performed after 3 and 6 months.

Results showed no statistical difference in clinical appearance of fillings irrespective of which adhesive was used.
