Dentin shear bond strength and marginal microleakage of a new primer/adhesive system were evaluated in this study and compared to Tenure Solution, Gluma, XR Primer/XR Bond, and Scotchbond 2. In addition, scanning electron microscopy examinations were conducted to evaluate the effect of the new primer on the smear layer, determine the film thickness of the primer/adhesive, and examine the resindentin interface of restorations placed with the new system.
