New books

Atlas of dental rehabilitation techniques / Romeo Pascetta. Milan : Quintessence Publishing, 2012.

Laboratory procedures require absolute precision to ensure that the appropriate anatomical information is preserved through each stage of fabrication. This laboratory manual defines the key elements that dental technicians should understand to succeed in their work. The authors illustrate the working techniques necessary to create esthetic and functional dental prostheses that reproduce the look of natural teeth.

Contemporary restoration of endodontically treated teeth: evidence-based diagnosis and treatment planning. / Nadim Z. Baba (ed). Hanover Park, IL: Quintessence, 2013.

Written by a group of renowned experts three decades after the publication of the last comprehensive book on this topic, this much-needed book has a wealth of evidence-based information on all facets of the restoration of pulpless teeth. With a better understanding of the factors that can influence the prognosis of severely compromised teeth, the approach to treating these teeth has evolved, and this text offers a well-balanced, contemporary approach to treatment planning.

Inspiration: people, teeth, and restorations. / Luiz Narciso Baratieri. London: Quintessence Pub, 2012.

Natural tooth behaves much as a collection of mosaics that change color according to the type of light and media in which they are found, and it is this beauty of tooth composition and form that is the inspiration to those who seek to mimic tooth in dental restorations. This stunning atlas is the culmination of more than 25 years of dedicated study into the optical behavior of teeth and restorative materials.
