Silane (gamma-methacryloxypropyltrimethoxysilane) has been used in composite materials since their inception as the coating on filler particles that binds them to a resin matrix. But silane has been found to have other useful purposes. This article will describe clinical techniques utilizing the latest scientific information in repairing or adding to composite restorations, repairing porcelain restoration, and bonding porcelain restorations, posts, and other materials utilizing a resin luting material either alone or in conjunction with other surface treatments such as sandblasting.
