Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry
The first edition of this book took the dental world by storm in 2002 and became one of the bestselling Quintessence books of all time. This new edition takes the science of esthetic dental reconstruction to a new level both clinically and academically, and it offers all that a clinician could wish for in terms of indications and the classic clinical steps for tooth preparation, laboratory and CAD/CAM procedures, adhesive luting procedures, and maintenance. But above all, what makes this book so unique is the biomimetic principle—as such, restoring or mimicking the biomechanical, structural, and esthetic integrity of teeth is paramount. The core of this book centers on the application of the biomimetic principle in the form of bonded restorations using composite resins and ceramics, covering indications, treatment planning, diagnosis, tooth preparation and impression, laboratory and CAD/CAM procedures, final delivery, follow-up, maintenance, and repair. Written by a true master and artist, this book will undoubtedly inspire excellence in anyone who picks it up.
