Abstract: The aim of this paper was to evaluate the influence of modulated photoactivation methods and volume of composite on Knoop hardness (KHN) and push-out bond strength (PBS) of Filtek Z350 to root dentin. Three volumes (small, medium and large) of composite were bulk inserted in cavities prepared in 90 premolars. The specimens were photoactivated with continuous light, pulse-delay, or soft-start methods and submitted to PBS and KHN tests. The failure pattern was evaluated in stereomicroscope after the bond strength test. The data were submitted to two-way ANOVA and Tukey's test (P<0.05). Modulated photoactivation methods showed a higher PBS than continuous method (P<0.05). Medium volume of composite showed higher PBS than small and large volumes when photoactivated with continuous method (P<0.05). Pulse-delay significantly increased KHN for medium and large volumes in comparison to continuous method (P<0.05). Medium volume of composite showed KHN significantly higher than small and large volumes (P<0.05). The volume of composite influenced the PBS and KHN of resin composites. Pulse-delay showed the highest bond strength to dentin, as well KHN similar to the conventional method. The analysis of the failure pattern showed predominance of adhesive failure.
