Introduction: The efficacy of an adhesive agent is an important aspect in restoring noncarious cervical lesion (NCCL) as studies have proved that compromise in adhesive agent results in reduced bond strength. The purpose of this prospective randomized double-blind clinical trial was to evaluate the efficacy of the newly formulated “universal” dental adhesive in the restoration of NCCLs in permanent dentition using either a self-etch or a selective-etch approach. Materials and Methods: The study was done following the consolidated standards of reporting trials. 100 NCCLs randomly divided into 2 groups were restored using G-Premio Bond adhesive and Genial flowable composite in selective etch mode and self-etch mode. Restorations were evaluated at 1 week, 6 months, and 12 months using modified US Public Health Service criteria for marginal staining, fracture, and postoperative sensitivity. Statistical analysis was performed using appropriate tests. Results: Recall rates were 100%, 98%, and 78% at the evaluation time. The result showed that neither the self-etch nor the selective etch mode had significant difference in ALPHA/BRAVO/CHARLIE scores (P > 0.05). Percentage-wise comparison showed less changes reported in the selective etch group compared to self-etch group. Conclusion: It was concluded that there was no statistical significance between the groups for the parameters evaluated, but selective etch performed better than self-etch group.
