Dental bonding revolutionized the shape and content of clinical dentistry, presenting a strong and minimally invasive alternative to the traditional materials.
The concepts of biomimetic restorations, natural tooth longevity and structural hierarchies have taken over the struggle of using stronger materials.
Polymerization shrinkage still threatens the success of all kinds of adhesive restorations. Our research methodology based on optical coherence tomography (OCT) presents a systematic approach for simulation of clinical situation in laboratory research, where the bonded restoration is subject to challenges such as shrinkage stress and fatigue loading.
The visual observations lead to a key conclusion; the success of restoring teeth with adhesive technology requires not only an optimal bonding approach, but also a strategy to mitigate the stresses and biomechanically protect the bonded interface and the dental tissue, such as with a continuous fiber laminated composite.
Such stress management is critical for restoration of structurally compromised teeth such as cracked teeth, and teeth with minimal coronal structure remaining.
- 1. Update of principles of adhesion and minimal invasive dentistry.
- Discussion of current concepts of dentin caries removal.
- An examination of what is known about the longevity of adhesion to dentin
- Introduction to fiber reinforcement of composite restorations.
- Cracked teeth etiology and recommendations for treatment.
- Biomimetic restoration concepts to restore structurally compromised teeth.
- Best restorative practices for direct and indirect restorations from rubber dam to adhesion techniques

Alireza Sadr DDS PhD Associate Professor of Department of Restorative Dentistry; Director of Operative Dentistry Training; Biomimetics Biomaterials Biophotonics Biomechanics & Technology (B4T) Research Lab, University of Washington, Seattle, WA
Adjunct Associate Professor, Department of Cariology and Operative Dentistry, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan
Dr. Sadr received his DDS degree from the National University of Iran (SBMU) and went on to complete his PhD and advanced training in operative dentistry in Tokyo Medical and Dental University, mentored by Prof. Junji Tagami in 2008. In Japan, he focused on advanced technology research, mainly dental adhesives and optical coherence tomography (OCT) for non-invasive diagnosis into the clinical practice of dentistry and a clinical imaging tool. Dr. Sadr’s research projects have been funded by the government, industry and non-profit organizations in Japan and the United States.
Dr. Sadr published close to 200 scientific articles with his colleagues, presented his research and trained dentists in advanced operative dentistry and biomimetic dentistry internationally. He is currently the director of operative dentistry and co-director of advanced digital dentistry training courses at UW, while running the B4T research laboratory and practicing dentistry in Seattle, WA. He is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA) and International Association for Dental Research (IADR). He is currently the Secretary General of the International Academy for Adhesive Dentistry (IAAD) and Honorary Fellow of the Academy of Biomimetic Dentistry (ABD). Dr. Sadr has received a UW SOD Faculty Award for 3 years in a row (2019, 2020 and 2021).
Affiliate Instructor of Department of Restorative Dentistry; Collaborator of B4T Research Lab, University of Washington, Seattle, WA
Dr. Chyz earned his D.D.S. degree in 1983 from the University of Michigan. Dr Chyz has maintained a private practice in downtown Seattle since 1986. He has been involved in various study clubs over the years and lectures on managing incompletely cracked teeth, as well as direct restorative dentistry with composite resin and laminated fiber reinforcement.
He has consulted with 3M on many products, but most notably on the development of Filtek Supreme. He serves as an unpaid consultant to Ribbond. Dr. Chyz first laminated Ribbond to internal tooth structure in 1999 – giving him a unique, long-term perspective on the value of fiber lamination to augment direct restorations. Dr. Chyz contributes to operative dentistry training at the UW School of Dentistry as an affiliate instructor and collaborates with Dr. Sadr in research on the diagnosis and treatment cracked tooth and fiber-reinforced composite restorations at B4T research lab.
