Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of photoactivation methods, resin liners, and the association of these techniques on the marginal adaptation of composite restorations. One-hundred-and-twenty bovine incisors were selected. A circular cavity was prepared in a flat dentin area on the buccal surface and the Scotchbond Multi Purpose system was applied. These teeth were assigned to four groups in accordance with lining technique: control (one adhesive layer), three adhesive layers individually photoactivated, Fiftek Flow, and Protect Liner F. Each group was subdivided depending on the photoactivation method: continuous light, soft-start, or intermittent light. All cavities were restored with Fiftek Z250 and then polished. Caries detector was applied on each specimen for 5 s in order to verify marginal adaptation through dye-staining of the gaps formed on the outer margins. Images of the stained gaps were observed under the stereomicroscope, and transferred to a computer measurement program in order to determine gap length. Data were submitted to ANOVA and Tukey's test (P < 0.05). Significant differences among the lining techniques were only observed using the photoactivation method with continuous light. In this case, the lining technique with Fiftek Flow significantly increased marginal adaptation of the composite to the outer dentin margins compared with the results of the control group. The other lining techniques showed intermediate values and no statistical difference from the other groups. For the photoactivation methods, intermittent light showed the best marginal quality of all the methods. This was statistically significant only for the control lining technique.
