Plant derived proanthocyanidins are well-established compounds exhibiting high dentin biomodification potency. Among the effects, enhanced tissue biomechanics and biostability are of relevance to restorative dentistry. This study evaluated the adhesive properties of an enriched proanthocyanidin primer on the bond strength of experimental resin-based adhesives containing variable concentrations of HEMA.
