The dental pulp has been shown to have its own reparative capacity and is capable not only of healing but alsoof providing a dentinal bridge in the absence of calcium hydroxide. The present study was performed to evaluateinterfacial gaps formed due to polymerization shrinkage of composite resin. 20 Maxillary or Mandibular, freshly extractedhuman third molars were prepared and filled using composite with a calcium hydroxide base. The samples were dividedinto two groups based on primer/bonding agent used i.e. Scotchbond multipurpose (Group I) and Single bond (GroupII).Sectioned samples were gold sputtered and analyzed using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The interfacial gap inspecimens belonging to group I and II was observed at the 3 interfaces viz; Calcium hydroxide-dentin interface (A),Composite resin - calcium hydroxide interface (B) and Composite resin - dentin interface (C). The interfacial gap formedbetween calcium hydroxide and dentin (A) was highly significant (p
