The common idea that edentulism can always be solved with implants is questioned in this book given that the most recent literature highlights the higher risk of implant prosthodontics than traditional conventional toothborne prosthodontics. This book represents a procedural guide to the fabrication of full veneer crowns with vertical margin design. The preparation of the natural tooth as a prosthetic pillar is certainly a “traditional” procedure that is still one of the most common activities that dentists perform today and the so-called “vertical” preparation is given full credit in this book.
• Clear and thorough overview on the fundamentals and principles of tooth preparation and in particular the “vertical” preparation
• Choice of materials according to each patient’s specific situation
• Step-by-step description of treatment planning and implementation
• Extensive use of the authors’ clinical cases
