Structural, Periodontal, and Endodontic Aspects
The purpose of this book is to set out a simple yet rigorous protocol that can routinely be used to achieve satisfactory results for composite partial restorations. Inlays and onlays allow significant conservation of sound tooth structure without undermining the tooth’s mechanical and physical properties. Composite inlays offer two crucial properties: the opportunity for correction before cementation and, above all, long-term reparability.
The Direct-Indirect Technique
Fahl jr., Newton / Ritter, André V.
The direct-indirect technique for composite resin veneer fabrication brings together many of the distinct advantages of the direct and indirect techniques. A direct-indirect restoration is one in which the composite resin is sculpted directly on the tooth structure without previous adhesive preparation, light activated, removed from the tooth, heat tempered, finished and polished extraorally, and finally adhered indirectly in the mouth in a single appointment. The resulting restoration exhibits improved mechanical properties, excellent esthetics, and unrivaled marginal adaptation and polishing. One of the most significant advantages of this technique is the possibility to modulate the final color of the restoration with luting agents, allowing for minor modifications in the restoration hue, chroma, and value. Furthermore, the direct-indirect technique has a wide range of applications, including prepless contact lenses and veneers, veneers with preparation (discolored teeth), fragments, diastema closure, and noncarious cervical lesions, among others. This book systematically covers these many applications and provides step-by-step protocols with specific layering strategies for each. Fifteen detailed case studies are included to showcase the technique in various clinical scenarios, highlighting the materials used and the type of composite veneer selected in each situation. Written by world-renowned masters in their field, this book will surely help to elevate your esthetic outcomes.
A Guide for Practicing Dentists
Zarow, Maciej (Co-Authors: D’Arcangelo, Camillo / Felippe, Luis Antonio / Paniz, Gianluca / Paolone, Gaetano)
Written by an international group of renowned experts in the field of reconstruction of pulpless teeth, this is a very practical book explaining in detail, step by step, the general principles of correct decision-making in endodontics, reconstructions and aesthetics of root canal treated teeth. How to avoid fractures? Should we carry out retreatment, or use implants? Should we restore pulpless teeth with direct or indirect restorations? How we can bleach discolourations after teeth have been endo-treated? How can aesthetics be improved in compromised cases? Should we use fibre posts? How can sub-gingival defects be treated? Can we opt for porcelain veneers or ceramic crowns? The aim of the book is to answer these questions and help practising dentists make the right decisions, which often require making difficult choices. Each of the 10 chapters include detailed photographs of clinical cases, descriptions of technical procedures, and practical tips for dental practitioners.
Material Selection and Technique
Terry, Douglas A. / Geller, Willi
Restorative dentistry has seen dramatic advances in recent years, especially with the use of digital technologies, and this book provides the most up-to-date information on enhanced developments, materials, and techniques that have emerged since the publication of the second edition, offering the reader a completely updated, revised, and newly illustrated overview of modern esthetic and restorative dentistry complete with tutorial videos. New topics include web-based communication with the laboratory, indirect composite chairside CAD/CAM restorations, a comparison of digital and conventional techniques, the resin composite injection technique, as well as updated information on composites and ceramic systems, including esthetic zirconia. New cases illustrate the maintenance of esthetic restorative materials, esthetic contouring, immediate dentin sealing, and novel surgical techniques such as lip repositioning, connective tissue grafting, and ridge preservation with collagen membranes. Dr Terry expanded his team of editorial reviewers to include the best minds in research and clinical practice, and the final product is a testament to his dedication to patient satisfaction and treatment success. The techniques demonstrated in this book will no doubt elevate your practice to the next level.
Etiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment
Soares, Paulo V. / Grippo, John O. (Ed.)
Cervical dentin hypersensitivity (CDH) and noncarious cervical lesions (NCCLs) are common findings in modern clinical practice. Although research has shown that NCCLs are a multifactorial condition involving the three mechanisms of stress, biocorrosion, and friction, few dentists know how to treat them effectively. Similarly, CDH has been an enigma for many years, and research has focused on etiology instead of treatment. In addition, little attention has been given to their mutual etiologic mechanisms of cervical stress concentration from occlusal loading and endogenous/exogenous biocorrosion. Therefore, this book approaches CDH and NCCLs together and outlines the history, mechanisms, and, most important, the clinical methods of treatment for these pathologies. It is about time we as dentists learn how to treat and prevent these conditions in clinical practice. This involves greater diagnostic effort and alteration of treatment protocols to (1) reduce dietary intake/exposure to acids, (2) manage reflux diseases, and (3) consider the significance of occlusal therapies. After reading this book, the student or clinician will be able to diagnose and treat clinical cases of NCCLs and CDH.

Science & Art
Tooth Preparations: Science & Art by Prof. Clovis Pagani and co-authors is a fully illustrated guide on tooth preparations, a fundamental part of daily dental practice. It contains essential theory and sound practice, including more than 700 high-quality 3D images. The most current concepts on tooth preparations for indirect restorations are covered, with a focus on biological care, preservation in operative procedure, and precision. The book is divided into eight chapters, covering topics such as restorative planning; state-of-the-art principles, sequences, and tools for preparations; intra- and extracoronal restorations; compromised teeth; adhesive milled restorations; minimally invasive preparations; and preparations for CAD/CAM restorations. This book provides a clear and objective outline of different conservative preparation designs indicated for a variety of clinical situations and is an indispensable addition to the collection of all restorative dentists.
Rodrigues, Antonio H. C.
Treatment planning is commonly considered one of the most important phases of any dental treatment and vital for achieving successful long-term results. However, most dental schools do not offer courses exclusively designed for comprehensive planning, and comprehensive planning is rarely discussed at scientific meetings because it is considered a basic topic that practitioners should already understand. This knowledge gap leaves practicing clinicians with few options beyond using their own intuition to solve problems, which is highly unpredictable. Therefore, this book presents clinical guidelines for planning treatments in restorative dentistry and outlines a clear, objective, and simple thinking process that can be easily applied in daily practice, essentially providing the reader with a roadmap to be used as a reference from the very initial procedures until final restorative treatment. Part 1 describes how to identify existing problems by gathering, organizing, and analyzing information obtained during clinical examination. Examination checklists and forms are included to ensure that no important information is left out during the evaluation process. Part 2 focuses on providing solutions to identified problems via restorative treatment options, highlighting the use of implant-supported restorations in the treatment of both partially and completely edentulous arches. Part 3 details how to present treatment options to the patient and includes aspects related to patient education, treatment plan presentation, and obtaining informed consent from the patient. Altogether, this book will transform the way you treatment plan your cases.
