New material could mean fewer trips to the dentist's office

A compound used to make car bumpers strong and protect wood decks could prevent return visits to the dentist's office.

The team also has developed an adhesive that's 30 percent stronger after six months in use than adhesives that are currently used to keep fillings in place.
