Abstract

For a restorative material, adhesion is the primary requirement so that restorative materials can be bonded to enamel or dentin and without the need of extensive tooth preparation. The initial advancement was made in 1956, by a pedodontist, Buonocore, who developed acid etching of the enamel. The concept and practice of esthetic dentistry now is common in most clinics around the world. Adhesive techniques have greatly expanded the horizon of aesthetic dentistry. Correction of shapes, positions, dimensions and shades of teeth is now possible with the adhesive restorative materials. An adhesion permits the placement of a more conservative restoration, reduces microleakage and dentin sensitivity. A solid understanding of biological, chemical and physical aspects of these adhesives is very essential for their proper use in field of dentistry.
