The purpose of this study was to evaluate the bond strength between root dentin and glass fiber posts cemented with dual cure resinous cement associated with the conventional and self-etching adhesive systems. Twenty-four single-rooted human teeth were selected, and the crowns were removed at the cement enamel junction. The roots received biomechanical preparation and obturation followed by the intraradicular preparation compatible with a drill diameter of the glass fiber posts. The roots were divided into two groups, according to cementation protocol (n-12): Group 1 - etched with 37% phosphoric acid for 30 seconds, total-etch adhesive system Single Bond (3M ESPE)  and Enforce  resinous cement (Dentsply); Group 2 – self-etch adhesive system One Up Bond F (Tokuyama)  and Enforce  resinous cement (Dentsply). After the posts cementation, the roots were kept at 370 C for one week, and submitted to pull out test on the universal testing machine Emic to a traction speed of 1 mm/min. Data in MPa were submitted to the statistical t-test (5%). The t-test showed significant differences between the two groups (p=0.003). The average values in MPa (±standard-deviation) were: Group 1: 5.28(±3.25), Group 2: 10.05(±3.78). Enforce associated with the self-etch adhesive system One Up Bond F showed significantly higher bond strength values than Group 1 - Enforce associated with the total-etch adhesive system Single Bond.
