There is no material in the history of dentistry that has undergone as much evolution as composite resin. The face of restorative dentistry changed forever when successful bonding to dentin was achieved. Since then, the goal of clinical and material science has been to find simple, predictable approaches to the composite restorative process.
"Fractured ceramic crowns are an everyday problem in dental practice. It is not always feasible or cost effective to replace the ceramic restoration for the patient if a repair can be made using composite resin. In this article, a new self adhering flowable composite, Vertise Flow, will be used to demonstrate a simplified approach to porcelain repair that does not require the use of Hydrofluoric acid or silane priming." —Dr. Robert A.
