From the Author
Our dental profession has devoted most of its history restoring the effects of dental disease. The last two decades has evidenced a paradigm shift in this philosophy that has been guided by a greater understanding of science. During this evolution, restorative dentistry has adopted a medical model for decision making in the treatment of dental disease that allows clinicians to individualize and evaluate all components of the process for a proper treatment strategy. This process also educates and involves the patient in treatment decisions, which results in acceptance of appropriate preventative and restorative strategies and improved compliance and oral health.
The public's interest for health and beauty has become an engine that continues to drive the demand for cosmetic dental procedures. In the past, achieving a beautiful smile required submission to extensive invasive procedures and expensive fixed dental prosthetic restorations. Advancements in restorative material formulations and adhesive technology have expanded the treatment possibilities for the clinician and technician. In addition, these advances have increased the myriad of opportunities available to discriminating patients and have provided solutions to many of the restorative and aesthetic challenges faced by clinicians. Also, this changing technology allows the clinician to treat many previously aesthetic and restorative challenges through more simple, conservative, and economical methods. This evolution in philosophy and science has resulted in a change in the trend for dental treatment. There has been a shift from patients seeking disease related treatment to elective cosmetic enhancement.
This first edition of Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry: Material Selection and Technique has been compiled to explain and teach aesthetic dental procedures through illustrations of everyday clinical situations. It is not designed to taut one restorative material as the best or which material a clinician should use. Instead, its purpose is to illustrate how a selected material and/or instrument should be used with a specific and thorough protocol to achieve the highest level of excellence for that material and clinical situation. The editorial team members were selected from different areas of the world for their scientific knowledge and clinical and laboratory expertise. This international group encompasses many facets of aesthetic and restorative dentistry including: biomaterials, laboratory technology, operative, prosthetic, and periodontic and implant dentistry. This combination of input will provide clinicians, technicians, and auxiliaries with the proper information to make improvements in their work while maximizing their productivity and providing improved oral health to their patients.

The layout of the book is also very appealing. Each chapter is broken up into two sections: one describes the theory and related research while the second is a clinic demonstration of how related procedures are performed (by some of the world's Finest).
I do recognize the steep price tag... but I feel this book has refined me as a professional and I am proud to keep it close in my dental library.
