Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate the shear bond strength (SBS) of a newly introduced self-adhesive resin cement, G-CEM ONE (GC Corporation, Itabashi-Ku, Tokyo, Japan), and compare it with Maxcem Elite (Kerr Corporation, Orange, California, United States of America), to enamel—an in vitro study. Materials and methods: Cylindrical-shaped cement specimens (diameter, 2 mm; height, 3 mm) were bonded to etched buccal surface and nonetched lingual surface enamel of 40 caries-free premolars. Test specimens were stored in distilled water for 1 week. The test specimens were subjected to SBS using a universal testing machine with a crosshead speed of 0.5 mm/minute. Statistical analysis: Data (n = 20 per group) were statistically analyzed using the Mann–Whitney and Shapiro–Wilk test at the 0.05 level of significance. The bond strength [megapascals (MPa)] of G-CEM ONE (GC) was statistically higher than Maxcem Elite (Kerr). Results: The SBS of the G-CEM ONE (GC) group to enamel is better than the Maxcem Elite (Kerr) group. Clinical significance: This study helps in following the proper protocol for the success of adhesive restorations.
