20 Recipes for Smile Design
While materials and techniques for creating beautiful indirect restorations are widely available, literature specifically applying these concepts to laminate veneers is lacking. This clinical handbook fills that gap by providing 20 simplified techniques that will enable dentists to obtain impressive results in every clinical situation using laminate veneers. Each technique is described step by step and beautifully illustrated, with digitally available clinical videos adding an interactive and engaging layer to the educational experience. All of the techniques in this book have three important things in common: they are feasible, they are teachable, and they are repeatable, making this book a practical and accessible guide for any clinician interested in providing minimally invasive esthetic treatment to their patients in the form of laminate veneers.
