The Science and Art of Porcelain Laminate Veneers

The Science and Art of Porcelain Laminate Veneers details the expanding field of porcelain laminate veneers in esthetic dentistry. It guides the esthetic dentist in understanding the needs of the patient and formulating a treatment plan that includes not only esthetic considerations, such as color and smile design, but also occlusal, periodontal, and functional requirements. In addition, it discusses the use of porcelain laminate veneers in diastema closure, the treatment of tetracycline discoloration, and in conjunction with orthodontic therapy. New techniques to ensure minimally invasive tooth preparation and maximum space creation for the dental technician are explored, and impression materials for porcelain laminate veneers are compared. The detailed guides to alternative porcelain materials and their step-by-step applications make this book invaluable for general practitioners, dental technicians, and the entire esthetic team.

Editorial Reviews
From Book News, Inc.
Gurel, who practices in Istanbul, Turkey, where he is the founder and head of the Turkish Academy for Esthetic Dentistry, has written a volume that supplies dentists with a complete guide to esthetic dentistry techniques using porcelain laminate veneers (PLV). The chapters describe the methodology of esthetic dentistry and the steps involved in designing and implementing the PLVs, including adhesion, porcelain-bonded restoration and function, color, and periodontal considerations. A 100-page central chapter provides an atlas of the treatment that leads the reader through each step. Other topics include failures, PLVs for diastema closure, and patient education. Some of the chapters are authored by six other specialists who practice in Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Turkey, and the US. The volume is well illustrated with color plates.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
