New Books - April 2018


Quintessence Publishing, 2017.

Predictable shade matching in dentistry remains a significant challenge for clinicians in daily

These authors demonstrate how to implement color science in simple problem-solving instructions for predictable esthetics in both clinical protocols and laboratory techniques. An extensive presentation of clinical cases is included to illustrate the use of recommended protocols in general practice. An outstanding contribution to the practice and theory of color management in contemporary dentistry. From publisher site
