Esthetic Oral Rehabilitation with Veneers Book Excerpt:

This book acquaints the clinician with the full range of parameters that need to be considered before undertaking an esthetic rehabilitation with veneers and describes current clinical concepts and techniques. The initial chapters provide the foundation for a comprehensive treatment plan. It is explained how digital smile design in conjunction with a wax-up and functional esthetic prototype allow a patient to visualize the possibilities. Occlusion prior to the initiation of treatment and following treatment is key to the longevity of restorations, and this aspect is given careful consideration. Detailed advice is also offered on proper selection of materials and their placement. The guidance provided will ensure that the reader is fully equipped to gather and assess all relevant information prior to commencement of the final treatment. The treatment itself can range from minimally invasive to more complex depending on the requirements of each individual case. Among the clinical concepts discussed in the book are the use of etched porcelain restorations, minimally invasive CAD/CAM veneers, and the ink glue technique.

Digital Dental Photography Book Excerpt:

Dental clinical photography is the most precise visual communication between doctor and patient, between doctor and a dental technician or interdisciplinary, where clinical manifestations are the main subject. Dental photography is an invaluable tool in documenting the case, establishing the diagnosis, and planning the treatment, even in the absence of the patient. With the help of dental photographs, we allow the patient to see what we see in his oral cavity. We also provide the dental technician with the aesthetic perception of color, morphological and chromatic characteristics of complex dental structures such as texture, shade, saturation, tooth brightness, and other optical properties of dental surfaces. With the help of dental photos, we create new smiles by applying the Digital Smile Design (DSD) Concept, allowing the patient to participate step by step in creating their smile. This concept consists of a virtual process of designing and previewing the final result, computer-assisted, based on the individual needs of the patient and the principles of harmony and dentofacial aesthetics while paying particular attention to the functional aspects of the dentomaxillary system. Today, dental photography has become an independent medical discipline in many countries, where candidates are well informed and prepared to take the best quality images. A modest attempt to combine the profession of doctor and photographer’s passion resulted in this work, aiming to accumulate as much helpful information about dental clinical photography in a single material. This work was written by a doctor for doctors, out of the desire to come to their aid, to give them a boost to a fascinating world of technique and art, as the approach of this kind of photography introduces us implicitly in an artistic creation area, where we will communicate to those to whom we address our thoughts, feelings, and moods, and reaching this area will give us many soul satisfactions.
