Introduction: Silorane-based composites have low polymerization shrinkage and good color stability. However, the effectiveness and the best surface treatment to carry out repairs to this type of restoration is unclear. Objective: To evaluate the effect of different types of repair made on a silorane-based composite. Material and methods: 80 disks of silorane-based composite were prepared (Filtek P90, 3M ESPE) and divided into eight groups (n = 10), according to the surface treatment being carried out before repairs of either the same silorane composite or a dimethacrylate material (Filtek Z350, 3M ESPE) were conducted. In two groups the immediate adhesion without repair (positive control) was evaluated. In other two groups repairs without any surface treatment (negative control) were evaluated. Surface treatments before the repair of the four remaining groups included the application of adhesive systems specific to silorane (Silorane System Adhesive, 3M ESPE) or to dimethacrylate (Adper Single Bond 2, 3M ESPE) and roughening followed by application of adhesive system. All groups were stored into distilled water at 37°C for 1 week prior to the microshear bond strength evaluation. Results: The group immediate adhesion silorane-dimethacrylate and group repair silorane-dimethacrylate without surface treatment showed lower microshear bond strength values and were statistically different from groups with surface treatment and immediate adhesion silorane-silorane (p < 0.05). Conclusion: Surface treatments with application of adhesive systems compatible with the repair material or roughening prior to the application of these adhesive systems are suitable for repairing silorane-based composites.
