While adhesive techniques have already penetrated almost all fields of dentistry, a gap remains between accepted treatment modes and what is carried out in daily practice. This book, a compilation of the proceedings from the 3rd European Symposium on Adhesive Dentistry, provides the information, arguments, and data that clinicians need to incorporate adhesive dentistry into their daily practice. Leaders in the field present the rationale for adhesive techniques in esthetic restorative dentistry. Minimally invasive dentistry and specific issues faced by clinicians using adhesive techniques with ceramic and resin composite restorations are also discussed. Finally, two concluding chapters remind clinicians that they are dentists operating in a biologic system with the objective to restore patients' health.
