Bonded Porcelain Restorations in the
Anterior Dentition: a Biomimetic Approach
From Book News, Inc.
This reference is based on the biomimetic principal,
i.e. the idea that the intact tooth in its ideal hues, shades, and
intracoronal anatomy and location in the arch is the guide to reconstruction
and the determinant of success. Pascal Magne and Urs Belser (both of the U.
of Geneva School of Dentistry) present nine chapters dealing with returning
all of the prepared dental tissues to full function by the creation of a
hard tissue bond that allows functional stress to pass through the tooth,
drawing the entire crown into the final esthetic result. Extensively
illustrated in color.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
Univ. of Geneva, Switzerland. Core of this text centers
on the application of the biomimetric principle in the form of bonded
porcelain restoration (BPRs). The broad spectrum of indications for BPRs is
described as well as detailed instruction on treatment planning and
diagnostic approach. Beautifully illustrated. DNLM: Dental Bonding--methods.

You must have this book, June 22, 2002
Blair from Columbus, OH United States
This book is a must have if you enjoy doing bonded porcelain restorations
and you want to see how a master does it. The lab work is unbelievable and
the photography is excellent. Its like having an Ansel Adams book: you have
to see how the best do it so that you have something to aspire to.
The cost is pretty high, but so what. You will want to take notes when
you read this. If you are really flush with cash, buy one for your lab tech.
