Representing years of photographic study, this elegant full-color book explores the color characteristics, form, texture, and luster of teeth. Understanding the optical behavior of natural tooth can guide clinicians in their use of artificial materials and enable them to better recreate natural optics in dental restorations. The author shows step-by-step how to determine correct tooth shade information and communicate it effectively to technicians. In addition, ceramic layering techniques are covered with a detailed explanation of the “skeleton build-up” and followed with multiple patient cases. This limited edition, numbered book will captivate anyone interested in dental esthetics.
