Objective: The aim of this in vitro study is to evaluate and compare the effect of 5% proanthocyanidin and 30% alpha-tocopherol on the bond strength of composite resin to the bleached enamel. Materials and Methods: The labial enamel surface of sixty central incisors was flattened for the purpose of this study. Fifteen teeth served as control group which did not receive bleaching nor antioxidant treatment. The remaining 45 teeth then were randomly divided into three groups of 15 each. They are Group 1: bleaching with 38% hydrogen peroxide for 10 min without the use of antioxidant, Group 2: bleaching followed by treating with 5% proanthocyanidin, and Group 3: bleaching followed by treating with 30% alpha-tocopherol. The bonded specimens were stored in distilled water (37°C, 24 h) and tested for shear bond strength in a universal testing machine. The data were analyzed with one-way ANOVA and Tukey's post hoc test. Results: Higher bond strength values were seen in the control group followed by 5% proanthocyanidin group. Conclusion: Use of 5% proanthocyanidin can effectively reverse the bond strength of bleached enamel.
