Industry Trends The overall U.S. dental material market is projected to experience modest growth over the forecast period, largely limited by the emergence of intraoral scanners. Although digitization is yet to become widespread, it has already impacted the dental material market, particularly towards impression and temporary restorative materials. As digital impression taking scanners are becoming
Dental bonding agents function to bond a restorative onto a tooth so that it remains stable permanently. All direct resin restorations require bonding, and indirect restorations either require bonding or are candidates for bonding. As the demand for bonded aesthetic restorations has increased, the evolution of bonding agents has accelerated.
Dental bonding agents are used to bond a restorative onto a tooth so it remains stable permanently. An ideal bonding agent must have several characteristics such as biocompatibility, high strength, and low microleakage. It is generally applied in conjunction with all direct composite restorations, indirect composite and ceramic inlays, onlays and veneers, and amalgam restorations. There are three primary components consisting bonding agents: the etchant, the primer and the adhesive. The etchant is used as a cleanser to prepare the surface of the tooth for the bonding process. The primer wets the tooth for the adhesive to stick better. The adhesive connects the primer to the actual restoration.
