Layers: An Atlas of Composite Resin Stratification

Despite the many advances of contemporary dental research inbiomaterials and tissue regeneration, no dental material canperfectly correspond to natural tooth. The authors of this dynamicatlas posit that it is the mastery of layering technique and notthe material itself that is most important in recreatingnatural-looking restorations. This reference book uses over athousand images to explore the stratification of natural tooth anddemonstrate solutions for how to arrange layers of composite resinto recreate the color, opacity, shape, and surface abnormalities ofnatural tooth. The authors provide step-by-step instruction inbasic layering techniques as well as in advanced applications ofdental characteristics, which are possible with a wide range ofesthetic dental materials. In addition, each chapter is prefacedwith insights from luminaries in esthetic dentistry, including LuizNarciso Baratieri, Galip Gürel, Pascal Magne, Francesco Mangani,Ricardo Mitrani, and Angelo Putignano, among others. Optimalstratification techniques not only create natural-looking beauty inrestorations but also imitate the innate bioarchitecture of teeth,which is the foundation of functional and esthetic results.ContentsColorInOutMidClassificationPalatal FeaturesPosterior TeethPhysiologic PhenomenaPathologic PhenomenaSurface and PolishingRed EstheticsAnalysisEnd
