Bonded Porcelain Restorations in the Anterior Dentition: a Biomimetic Approach

Editorial Reviews
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

Book Info

5 out of 5 stars You must have this book, June 22, 2002

  Reviewer: Brad 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.
