Noncarious cervical lesions (NCCLs) and cervical dentin hypersensitivity (CDH) are two common conditions. The failure ratio of noncarious cervical lesions are lower than other restorations. There is no exact consensus on the restoration of NCCLs among dentists. Resin-modified glass ionomer cement (RMGIC) is one of the most preferred materials in the cervical region. The aim of this study is to evaluate In Vitro the shear bond strength of RMGIC in the restoration of NCCLs by diode lasers used in CDH. All groups using the diode laser found that the shear bond strengths increased according to the control group, but no significant difference was seen (p > 0.05). The combined use of RMGIC and diode lasers during NCCL restorations may increase the restorations’ longevity.
