Nowadays, durable esthetic direct resin-based filling composites in combination with efficient enamel-dentin adhesives play an important role in modern dentistry. Thereby, the surface of the cavity is etched and primed with a self-etching enamel-dentin adhesive. After filling the cavity with the composite and photocuring (see picture), a highly esthetic tooth shaded composite restoration is created. The article describes the continuous improvement of the properties of the direct restorative materials by the use of new tailor-made functionalized monomers and cross-linkers as well as new additives and photoinitiators.
