The objective of the study was to comparatively evaluate the tensile bond strength and microleakage of Prime & Bond NT and Gluma Comfort Bond. Sixty teeth were taken and randomly divided into two groups, Group A for tensile bond strength and Group B for microleakage testing. Group A was further divided into two groups, Group I (Prime & Bond NT) and Group II (Gluma Comfort Bond). In this study, it was concluded that the tensile bond strength of Group I was higher than that of Group II. Prime & Bond NT showed lower microleakage at both gingival and occlusal margins. Both intra and inter group comparisons showed higher values for microleakage at gingival margins as compared to occlusal margins. In-vitro testing suggests better bonding properties and less microleakage for Prime & Bond NT over Gluma Comfort Bond.
