Bond strength of enamel depends on the number of etched surface and enamel structure being exposed. Hence it is necessary to study the etching techniques used for enamel etching. Etching can be done in two ways namely, total etch and self etch. This article emphasis the bond strength and use of total etch bonding system in enamel etching.
