By Bernard G. N. Smith, Leslie C. Howe Copyright 2013

    This highly successful text, which has achieved wide acclaim among practitioners and is a recommended text in the major dental schools, has again been revised and updated to keep it at the forefront of clinical practice. As before, the intention is to help solve real clinical problems by guiding dentists to make the right initial decision and then carry it through. This new edition includes significantly expanded material on veneers and implants in particular, so as to help dentists advise patients in their choice of what to do and how to make informed choices.
