The purpose of this scanning electron microscope study was to observe the dentin-amalgam interface after utilizing a standard restorative liner and a single-component dentin adhesive. Continuous interface gaps of over 15 mu were observed in specimens containing no lining and Copal varnish. Discontinuous 5 microns gaps were observed in specimens treated with PQ1. Additionally, specimens treated with PQ1 exhibited resin interpenetration into the dentin surfaces.
