Introduction: The aim of this study was to compare the shear bond strengths of various adhesive systems to white mineral trioxide aggregate (WMTA) with different time intervals. Methods: Two hundred cylindrical acrylic blocks with a hole (4-mm diameter and 2-mm height) were prepared. The holes were filled with WMTA, and the specimens were allocated into 5 groups. Forty specimens were stored for 4, 24, 48, 72, and 96 hours at 37 C and 100% humidity. Each group was divided into 4 subgroups: group 1, All-Bond SE (Bisco Inc, Schaumburg, IL); group 2, All-Bond 3 (Bisco Inc); group 3, One-Step Plus (Bisco Inc); and group 4, control. After the application of adhesive systems, composite resin (Aelite, Bisco) was applied over the WMTA. Shear bond strengths were measured using a universal testing machine, and the data were subjected to 1-way analysis of variance and the Scheffe post hoc test. Results: There was a significant difference between the 4-, 24-, 48-, 72-, and 96-hour measurements in all of the adhesive systems (P < .001). Among all time intervals, group 3 showed significantly higher bond strengths to WMTA than the other groups (P < .001). Groups 1 and 2 were similar (P = .365). Conclusions: It was concluded that if a longer waiting time can be practiced after the mixing of WMTA, higher shear bond strength measurements can be obtained. Also, when WMTA was used with total-etch adhesive systems, it showed better shear bond strength. (J Endod 2012;38:1288-1292)
