Microleakage between the restorative materials and the cavity walls of teeth remains a problem. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the microleakage around Class V ceramic inlay restoration using three different cementation techniques. Class V preparations were made on the buccal surfaces of 45 freshly extracted premolar teeth. The teeth were randomly divided into three groups of 15. In the first group, dentine bonding agent (DBA) (Clearfil Liner Bond 2V) was applied immediately after the tooth preparation (D-DBA). In the second group, DBA was applied to the prepared cavities while luting ceramic inlays (I-DBA). In the third group, DBA was not applied at either stage (No-DBA). Impressions were made and ceramic inlays (Ceramco II) fabricated and cemented in the Class V cavities. The restorations were stored in water at room temperature for 24 h. All restorations were thermocycled and then subjected to a dye penetration test. After sectioning, leakage at cavity/restoration interface was scored. Statistical analysis was performed using Kruskal-Wallis, Mann-Whitney U and Wilcoxon's signed tests. Results showed no significant difference among three different cementation techniques (P > 0.05). Microleakage at the dentine margins was greater than that at the enamel margins (P < 0.05).
