Product Description:
This book introduces a unique approach to esthetic restoration of the anterior dentition. Guided by the philosophy of biomimetics, the authors combine sound biologic principles with an overriding respect for the natural intact tooth to achieve esthetic satisfaction with bonded porcelain restorations. Unlike traditional veneers, the approach described here draws upon the ideal hues, the subtle shades, and especially the intracoronal anatomy of the intact tooth to serve as a guide to reconstruction and as a measurement of success. From this perspective, a checklist of fundamental esthetic criteria is presented, and treatment planning, diagnostics, tooth preparation, laboratory procedures, adhesive luting procedures, and maintenance protocols are carefully detailed. The reader will find all the information and step-by-step instruction needed to obtain the authors superior results, which are showcased throughout the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars.  Average, January 09, 2014
By Carlos Martins
2 issues:

- when I did the buy, ther was an offer of, free quick shipping for the first delivery made at Amazon. After sellecting it the price for shipping was 50 dollars almost. I just realised later. It was offer to me 1/2 payment which I accepted, but I don't think thats a good policy. A little tricky for newcomers from other contries.

- When the book irreved it came whit a jag at the hard cover. But actualy i didn t complain. But, not ook for an hard cover in a book as expensive as this one.

Sorry for my english,

Carlos Martins

A must read for all dentists. Should be mandatory in school. This book demonstrates the confluence of biology, chemistry and physics.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Informative Book, May 02, 2010
By Christopher Sing
Originally I borrowed this book from the university library, thinking that I could read it and return it. After spending several evenings reading and reviewing the concepts and diagrams in book, I decided to purchase it, deciding that it would make a wonderful addition to my dental library. I was a little bit worried about buying a book that was written over 7 years ago, but many of the concepts and techniques that Dr. Magne discusses still hold true.

The book is divided into 9 chapters:

Chapter 1 - Understanding the intact tooth and the biomimetic principle.
Chapter 2 - Natural Oral Esthetics
Chapter 3 - Ultraconservative Treatment Options
Chapter 4 - Evolution of Indications for Anterior Bonded Porcelain Restorations
Chapter 5 - Initial Treatment Planning and Diagnostic Approach
Chapter 6 - Tooth Preparation, Impression and Provisionalization
Chapter 7 - Laboratory Procedures
Chapter 8 - Try-In and Adhesive Luting Procedures
Chapter 9 - Maintenance and Repairs

The book stresses the biomimetic approach, which I think is more of the swiss school of dentistry. (Making the teeth look realistic and polychromatic.)

The photos in the book are well taken, something to aspire towards. The book is also part of the recommended readings from the American Association of Cosmetic Dentists (AACD). (It also comes in a laminated box, something I didn't expect, but is a nice to have.)
