Dental digest is a dental podcast devoted to evidence based dentistry. A thorough understanding for advanced adhesive dentistry and biomimetic dentistry is necessary for creating composite restorations that last. In this episode, Dr. David Alleman will clear up several misconceptions related to biomimetic dentistry, advanced adhesive dentistry and operative dentistry. One of the greatest misconceptions in dentistry is that enamel obtains a better bond and stronger bond than dentin. While enamel bonding is less-technique sensitive and more straightforward, extensive literature has been published to demonstrate that dentin can obtain a stronger bond. That being said, dentin bonding is far more technique sensitive.
