The aim of this study was to determine the difference in shear bond strength between Composite, Compomer and Resin modified glass ionomer cement in primary and permanent teeth. Thirty extracted primary molars and thirty premolars were selected and buccal surfaces of all the teeth were made smooth with the help of 300 grit silicon carbide paper. These specimens were then divided into 6 groups. Restorative materials were placed on the buccal surfaces of respective specimens with the help of acrylic template. All the specimens were subjected to thermocycling and shear bond strength was tested under the Honsfield testing machine and results were recorded in megapascals (MPa). The resultant scores were tabulated and statistically analysed. It was observed that in case of primary teeth resin modified glass ionomer exhibited significantly higher shear bond strength as compared to composite and compomer, where as on permanent teeth composite demonstrated a significantly higher shear bond strength than that of the resin modified glass ionomer and compomer, where as compomer gave poor shear bond strength in both primary and permanent teeth.
