Mastery of basic prosthetic techniques is necessary before a clinician can undertake complex prosthetic procedures with confidence. This book reviews practical solutions to clinical problems in prosthodontics and emphasizes the fundamentals necessary to elicit efficiency and success with every prosthetic protocol. The author demonstrates each step of prosthetic rehabilitation, starting with accurate impression taking, cast preparation and articulation, record taking, and thorough treatment planning. The sequences for fixed prosthodontic restorations are detailed in both arches for posterior full-coverage crowns, anterior porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, and porcelain laminate veneers. Comprehensive illustrations complement the descriptions. This atlas outlines the theories, skills, and therapeutic philosophy that are crucial to achieving excellence in prosthodontic rehabilitation.
