Abstract

Contemporary adhesive systems and restorative composite materials can successfully seal and restore teeth and can facilitate the use of a minimally invasive cavity preparation technique. These systems give the operator the potential to reinforce damaged teeth and preserve healthy tooth structure. The adhesion principles rely on strict adherence to excellence in clinical technique. Differences in clinical results may depend more on the operator's adherence to good clinical technique than the specific material selected.
