Purpose: To investigate the long-term effect of 0.05% or 0.1% caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) on dentin matrix stability and hybrid layer stability, using an etch-and-rinse (Adper Scotchbond Multipurpose/ASB) or a self-etch adhesive (Clearfil SE Bond/CSE).
Materials and Methods: Dentin matrix specimens were assigned to five groups: 0.05% or 0.1% CAPE, green tea (GT), and the controls distilled water (DW) and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). Following immersion of specimens for 1 h, modulus of elasticity (ME) and dentin mass change (MG) were determined at 3 post-treatment time points: immediately afterwards and at 3 and 6 months. Collagen solubilization (CS) was estimated by hydroxyproline (HYP) quantification. Resin-dentin interfaces with both adhesives were assessed with in situ zymography tests to evaluate gelatinolytic activity (GA). The dentin pretreatments were actively applied for 60 s. The sealing ability of aged resin-bonded slices was assessed by nanoleakage tests.
Results: GT increased immediate ME, which decreased significantly after 3 months (p < 0.0001). The CAPE groups did not differ from the control groups. GT provided a significant increase in dentin matrix mass after treatment (p < 0.0001). No significant differences regarding MG were observed for CAPE 0.1%, CAPE 0.05%, DW, and DMSO groups after 3 and 6 months. Cumulative HYP release revealed that CAPE groups and GT were statistically similar to DW and DMSO; the GT group exhibited statistically significantly less HYP release than did CAPE groups (p = 0.0073). Treatment with 0.05% or 0.1% CAPE presented lower GA when applied to ASB before acid conditioning (p < 0.05), but no differences were detected when the CAPE groups were applied to CSE. CAPE at 0.1% significantly reduced nanoleakage for CSE, and 0.05% CAPE with CSE presented levels of nanoleakage similar to those of the CSE control group.
Conclusion: CAPE at 0.05% or 0.01% did not influence ME, MG, or CS, but reduced GA when applied to ASB before acid conditioning. CAPE at 0.1% with CSE promoted adhesive layer integrity.
