Intervention Details:
    Device: Adper Easy Bond Self-etch dental adhesive
    Bonding composite to restore Class I or Class II cavities
    Other Name: self etch adhesbive with enamel etch
Detailed Description:

There is svcant evidence available on the performance of self-etching dental adhesive systems. This study aims to clinically evaluate a self-etch adhesive used either witj an extra enamel etching step, or in a self-etch stand alone technique with no extra enamel etch.
