In orthodontics, the scientific interest regarding adhesion is focused on optimizing adherents: metallic or aesthetic bracket base conditioning, creating aesthetic brackets with improved mechanical properties, enamel conditioning and artificial surface conditioning (aesthetic veneers and crowns). In order to investigate the interfaces between adherents there are several invasive (destructive) methods such as tensile bond strength tests, shear bond strength tests and microleakage tests.
