Distinguished by the authors’ strong commitment to conservative dentistry, this revised
textbook combines time-proven methods with the latest scientific developments in preventive and restorative dentistry. Existing chapters have been updated and expanded, and five new chapters have been added. The addition of color photographs enhances the clinical concepts in several key chapters, and extensive reference lists promote further study into evidence-based research. New chapters discuss bleaching, esthetic considerations in diagnosis and treatment planning, root caries, fluoride-releasing materials, and the Tucker technique for cast-gold restorations. Also described are techniques for direct and indirect restorations, including inlays and onlays, porcelain veneers, and ceramic crowns. Current concepts in adhesive technology, caries management, and remineralization are discussed, as is preservation of pulpal and periodontal health. Students, educators, and practitioners alike will find this text a valuable resource for choosing among the widening range of treatment options.
