This study aimed to evaluate the application of resin-based materials on enamel with and without removal of the excess subjected to short erosion in vitro (subproject 1) and to evaluate the resistance of these materials when subjected to erosion and/or abrasion in a prolonged study in vitro (subproject 2) and in situ (subproject 3). Specimens/blocks of bovine enamel previously eroded (immersion in 0.01 M HCl, pH 2.3 for 30 s) were randomized among groups and treated following the manufacturer\'s instructions. On subproject 1 there were 2 factors under study, type of treatment (control, sealant, self-etching adhesive, 3-step adhesive and infiltrant) and materials condition (with/without material excess removal). After materials application, in half of the specimens, the excess was removed, prior to polymerization. The specimens were subjected to erosive cycling for 5 days (0.01 M HCl, pH 2.3 for 2 min and artificial saliva for 2 h, 4 times/day). On the subproject 2, there were 2 factors under study, type of treatment (control, sealant, adhesive and infiltrant) and type of wear (erosion, abrasion, erosion/abrasion). After the treatments, the specimens were subjected to erosive cycling (0.01 M HCl, pH 2.3 for 2 min and artificial saliva for 2 h, 4 times/day), abrasive (30 reciprocal movements, force 1.5 N and slurry with fluoride dentifrice) and combination of both (erosion, 4 times/day + abrasion 2 times/day) for 30 days. On subproject 3, there were 3 factors under study, types of treatment (control, sealant, adhesive and infiltrant), type of wear (erosion, erosion/abrasion) and challenge time (5 and 28 days). In a single phase, 21 volunteers used a palatal appliance (one row corresponded to erosion and the other to erosion/abrasion, 2 specimens per treatment in each row). During 20 days of challenge, the blocks were subjected to erosion (0.01 M HCl, pH 2.3 for 2 min, and human saliva for 2 h, 4 times/day), and erosion/abrasion (erosion 4 times/day + abrasion 2 times/day with oscillatory motions for 15 s and slurry with fluoridated dentifrice). After the challenges and during the weekends, the appliance was kept immersed in artificial saliva. The results were evaluated by profilometry and the data were analyzed by ANOVA, followed by the Tukeys test (p<0.05). On subproject 1, it was observed that all materials without excess removal formed a layer over enamel. After the erosive challenge this layer remained inhibiting enamel loss. Sealant, 3- steps adhesive and infiltrant with material excess removal showed enamel loss after treatment. All materials with excess removal, showed loss of enamel statistically similar to the control group, except for the sealant, that promoted minor enamel loss. On subproject 2, after the treatment, materials thickness showed significance differences. The adhesive had the highest thickness followed by the sealant and infiltrant. There was no significant difference between sealant and infiltrant. After the erosive challenge in vitro it was observed that erosion/abrasion resulted in significantly higher enamel loss than erosion, which was higher than abrasion. All materials, regardless wear conditions, were maintained after the 30 days of challenge, however, the adhesive showed greatest material thickness loss, statistically differing from the sealant and infiltrant. On subproject 3, the application of resin-based materials did not cause superficial enamel loss. After the erosive challenge, there was no difference between the conditions ERO and ERO + ABR (p=0.869). All materials promoted protection against erosion compared to control group (p=0.001). The infiltrant group showed a thicker layer of material above enamel compared to the other materials (p =0.001). Based on results, it is concluded that the resin-based materials applied onto enamel were effective in inhibiting enamel loss subjected to erosive challenges associated or not with abrasion in vitro and in situ.
