History and Evolution of Dental Bonding
Adhesive dentistry started in 1955 with Dr. Michael Buonocore’s paper on acid etching.
– Dental bonding agents have evolved from no-etch to total-etch to self-etch systems.
– 4th generation bonding agents achieved the best bonding and longevity.
– In 2012, new universal adhesives were commercialized.

Dental Bonding in Orthodontic Treatments
– Bonding orthodontic brackets to teeth is crucial for effective treatment.
– There is no clear evidence on the best type of orthodontic adhesive to use.

Dental Adhesive and Dentine Bonding Agents
– Dentine bonding agents are used in dental bonding procedures.
– This section needs expansion.

Dental bonding (Wikipedia)

Adhesive dentistry is a branch of dentistry which deals with adhesion or bonding to the natural substance of teeth, enamel and dentin. It studies the nature and strength of adhesion to dental hard tissues, properties of adhesive materials, causes and mechanisms of failure of the bonds, clinical techniques for bonding and newer applications for bonding such as bonding to the soft tissue. There is also direct composite bonding which uses tooth-colored direct dental composites to repair various tooth damages such as cracks or gaps.

Dental bonding

Dental bonding is a dental procedure in which a dentist applies a tooth-colored resin material (a durable plastic material) and cures it with visible, blue light. This ultimately "bonds" the material to the tooth and improves the overall appearance of teeth. Tooth bonding techniques have various clinical applications including operative dentistry and preventive dentistry as well as cosmetic and pediatric dentistry, prosthodontics, and orthodontics.
