With the increased demand for esthetic restorations, the use of composite resin has shown tremendous growth. The composite resin restoration is technique sensitive. The present study was done to evaluate the variation in the shear bond strength when common errors like over etching, over drying and non removal of solvent were incorporated during the placement of composite resin. The result showed a considerable decrease in the shear bond strength while these errors were incorporated. This decrease in bond strength was statistically significant.
