The method of reducing dentinal sensitivity by incorporation of glutaraldehyde is known. However, the effect of 2% glutaraldehyde on the hybridization and thus the bond strength is still obscure. This study was undertaken to determine the effect of use of 2% glutaraldehyde on the bond strength using 5% generation bonding agent and also the effect of same on the formation of hybrid layer. The variables tested were 5th generation bonding agent with and without application of 2% glutaraldehyde, applied before and after the application of 5th generation of bonding agent. The results showed a definite increase in bond strength in the group in which glutaraldehyde was a part of bonding protocol.
