Abstract

The use of pumice to remove the salivary pellicle, plaque, and/or surface debris is a well-known procedure. However, pumice can act as a contaminant. Therefore, a slurry of pumice without additives is recommended for use prior to bonding procedures. This article presents a review of the shear bond strengths obtained by bonding composite resin to enamel after the enamel had been cleansed with a slurry of pumice and a premixed caplet of pumice.
