Both sound dentin (23.1 MPa) and etched sound dentin (22.2 MPa) had similar bond strengths, whereas artificial carious lesions in dentin that had been etched (11.8 MPa) and non-etched dentin lesions (8.8 MPa) had significantly lower bond strengths. Adhesive failures were greatest for dentin lesions (60-95%) and least for sound dentin(40-50%). Etching with phosphoric acid did not improve the bond strength of composite to sound dentin or artificial carious lesions in dentin.
