Background: Bonding of composite with enamel and dentin gets compromised if the tooth is restored with composite immediately post bleaching. The application of antioxidants has shown to have a positive effect on it. Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the effect of guava seed extract solutions in various concentrations on the shear bond strength (SBS) of composite resin to bleached enamel when applied for 5 min, 10 min, and 120 min. Materials and Methods: Fifty-five maxillary incisors were procured, and labial surfaces of 50 specimens were bleached with 37.5% hydrogen peroxide. These specimens were divided into 3 experimental groups: Group 1–3 comprising 15 specimens each (n = 15), and the remaining specimens were divided into two groups: Group 4 (positive control group) and Group 5 (negative control group). Groups 1–3 were further divided into 3 subgroups according to the application period of antioxidant: subgroups A, B, and C. Specimens were stored in distilled water for 24 h. SBS testing was done using the universal testing machine. Data were tabulated and subjected to statistical analysis using a three-way analysis of variance with post hoc Tukey's test. Results: Guava seed extract showed a complete reversal of the compromised bond strength, and promising results were seen with increased concentration. Conclusion: The use of antioxidants effectively reversed the compromised bond strength of bleached enamel, and an increase in the concentration of antioxidants reduces the duration of its application.
