ESTHETIC DENTISTRY presents clearly highlighted techniques in step-by-step fashion, with unmistakable delineation of armamentarium, for the treatment of esthetic problems. Hundreds of clinical tips are included throughout the book to alert clinicians to potential problems, variations on techniques, and other treatment considerations. Numerous tables and boxes illustrate the properties of various materials and compare/contrast different products on the market. An invaluable troubleshooting guide presents different types of esthetic problems (such as size, discoloration, and spacing problems), potential solutions, and references to chapters where the specific problem is discussed in detail. Finally, the excellent full-color art program of this book clearly depicts important concepts involving coloration and shading on both natural teeth and prostheses.
