This book reviews the evidence relating to the mechanisms, clinical efficacy, safety/toxicity, and clinical application of tooth whitening techniques and materials.
All clinical techniques are profusely illustrated step by step.
The book is divided into four parts, the first of which explains how tooth whitening with peroxides works and examines the overall safety of peroxides and potential complications.
The findings of clinical trials with peroxide-based materials for clinical practice are then examined, with discussion of a wide range of issues in at-home whitening and in-office whitening.
The third part focuses on the techniques of enamel microabrasion and resin infiltration, which entail removal of a microscopic layer of enamel and may be used to improve tooth color either alone or in combination with peroxides. The concluding part includes a variety of informative clinical cases using combined bleaching and restorative techniques for discolored teeth.
Tooth Whitening — An Evidence-Based Perspective will be of interest for dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, and others with an interest in the subject.
This second edition capitalises on the book’s
position as the major scientific treatise in
the field. It addresses the scientific basis of
endodontology rather than majoring on
didactic methods of treatment. The second
edition adopts a strengthened approach
to the systematic analysis of the available
clinical and laboratory evidence.
Now in its fifth edition, this comprehensive
textbook of dental radiography and radiology for
undergraduate dental students, postgraduate
students and qualified practitioners looks at both
traditional imaging methods and new modalities.
A new author also has been added to this edition.

As esthetic dentistry continues to grow
in popularity, dentists are offered an
opportunity to expand their practices and
attract new patients. Esthetic Dentistry
in Clinical Practice provides dentists
with the skills to take advantage of that
opportunity. Clearly outlining esthetic
procedures, the book enables dentists to
treat patients in an efficient and clinically
This book aims to define the etiological factors in dental caries and to guide the clinician towards methods of caries prevention that are evidence based.
The coverage includes discussion of the active role of the biofilm and the oral environment and emphasizes the multifactorial etiology of dental caries.
The opening chapters describe the early detection and diagnosis of dental caries, highlight the value of caries risk assessment to the patient, and explain the dynamic process of the demineralization–remineralization cycle.
Information is presented on the action of fluoride, and the evidence relating to the use and effectiveness of remineralization agents and biomimetic materials is reviewed. Additionally, the effects of antimicrobials such as chlorhexidine and ozone are summarized.
Further chapters focus on dietary counseling (with information on sweeteners and probiotics), the effectiveness of sealants in caries prevention, and resin infiltration. The philosophy of prophylaxis and ways to improve patient compliance and achieve proper mechanical plaque removal are discussed.
The book is concluded with a chapter discussing preventive actions in representative cases.
This clinically oriented book covers all aspects of the evidence-based decision making process in multidisciplinary management of the natural dentition.
The book opens by clarifying the principles of evidence-based decision making and explaining how these principles should be applied in daily practice.
Individual chapters then focus specifically, and in detail, on endodontic, periodontal, and prosthetic considerations, identifying aspects that need to be integrated into decision making and treatment planning.
Evidence-based decision making with regard to preservation of the natural tooth versus extraction and implant placement is then discussed, and a concluding chapter examines likely future trends in dentistry and how they may affect clinical decision making.
The authors include leading endodontists, periodontists, and prosthodontists. Given the multidisciplinary and comprehensive nature of the book, it will be relevant and interesting to the entire dental community.
