Aim: To compare the shear bond strength of composites to the sodium ascorbate hydrogel-treated bleached enamel surfaces. Materials and methods: Sixty-six extracted human maxillary first premolars were sectioned mesiodistally to obtain two nonocclusal surfaces (n = 132). The specimen in the experimental group (n = 80) were divided into four treatment groups depending upon bleaching protocols used: group I (10% FGM home bleach), group II (22% Pola Night home bleach), group III (37% light-activated in-office bleach Pola Office+), and group IV (35% Pola office in-office bleach without light activation). Specimens were subjected to the 1-minute application twice with sodium ascorbate hydrogel and were further divided into two subgroups “a” (acetone-based) and “b”(ethanol-based) depending upon the bonding agents used. The specimens of the control group (n = 52) were further divided into two treatment groups, that is, positive control and negative control. The specimens were tested using universal testing machine. Results: The result of the present study revealed that the specimens bleached with 10% FGM home bleach showed the greatest shear bond strength and specimens bleached with 35% in-office bleach Pola Office showed the lowest shear bond strength. Conclusion: A twice 1-minute application of sodium ascorbate hydrogel was effective to reverse the deleterious results of bleaching on enamel shear bond strength. Bonding agent containing acetone as a solvent (Prime and Bond NT) in this present study showed greater shear bond strength values than the bonding agent containing ethanol as a solvent (Adper Single Bond). Statement of clinical relevance: The shear bond strength of composite restorative materials could be improved by applying sodium ascorbate gel to the bleached enamel surfaces.
