    Non-destructive 3D imaging of composite restorations using optical coherence tomography: marginal adaptation of self-etch adhesives
    Objectives To investigate the potential use of swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) as a new tool to evaluate marginal adaptation of composite restorations in class I cavities. Methods Round-shaped class I cavities (3 mm diameter x 1.5 mm depth) were prepared on buccal enamel of bovine teeth with cavity floor located in dentin. The cavities were restored with a flowable resin composite (Clearfil Majesty LV) using two-step self-etch adhesive (SE Bond), all-in-one self-etch adhesive (G-Bond) or no adhesive (Control). The specimens were subjected to water storage (37 °C, 24 h) or thermal stress challenge (5,000 cycles, 5 °C ...
