This study evaluated the effect of temporary cements with or without eugenol on the bond strength of a dual-cure resin cement to dentin. Etched, silanated Dicor buttons were bonded to dentin surfaces after pretreatment with the cements. The buttons were sheared in an Instron testing machine. The results showed that shear bond strength is not affected by the temporary cements, if the dentin is cleaned with pumice and treated with Prisma Universal Bond 3 dentin bonding system.
