Advancement in resin based dental materials including resin luting cements is at the center of developing predictable adhesive dentistry
. Properties of resin based cements critical to the success of adhesive restorations include adequate bond strength, low solubility, biocompatibility, color stability, low film thickness and polymerization shrinkage.1 Resin cements are classified according to the filler type (micro, micro, nano), mode of activation (photo, chemical and dual cure) and bonding mechanism (self-etch and total etch).2 Resin cements contain different monomers linked together during polymerization reaction.
Therefore adhesive dentistry
gives an option for the repair of already existing composite restoration instead of its complete removal and replacement.11 Long term stability of silorane based composite resin repair needs further focus for optimization of protocol for repair process.12,13
The aim of this critical review is to assess the literature on the recent trends in adhesive dentistry
to restore the endodontically treated teeth.

Advances in the formulation of new adhesive systems and techniques are generally assessed using mechanical tests which, despite their limitations (Heintze, 2013), have contributed significantly to the development of adhesive dentistry
(Scherrer et al., 2010)
The advent of adhesive dentistry
has caused a dramatic change in the restorative procedures.
