Critical appraisal: bonding to fluorosed tooth structure.

In many continuing education lectures, I frequently have been asked the question "When bonding to fluorosed teeth, should I do anything differently?" As the prevalence of fluorosis has increased, this question has become more and more clinically relevant. Unfortunately, there has not been extensive research in this area, but there has been some. Recent Ask the Expert pieces in the Journal have addressed the issue, and this Critical Appraisal covers the recent research on bonding of resin-based materials to fluorosed enamel and dentin in greater detail.
