This textbook considers the properties and applications of dental materials and includes all the necessary basic science and clinical applications. Virtually all procedures in restorative dentistry make use of a dental material. Among these materials are metals, ceramics, polymers and composites, and their uses include filling of cavities and root canals and the making of impressions or replicas of teeth and tissues prior to the construction of crowns, bridges and dentures. All dental students need to acquire a working knowledge of both the properties and applications of the materials which they will use.

This third edition provides a foundation for understanding basic materials science principles and their relationship with dental materials in the clinical setting. The book is suitable for undergraduate students and to facilitate those with an interest in furthering their dental materials science knowledge. The book features a thorough coverage of direct and indirect materials used by dentists in clinical practice. The constituents of each material, setting reactions and key properties of materials that ultimately affect clinical performance are described in a concise and coherent manner. In summary, this book provides a useful tool in understanding basic material science principles and how these might relate to the clinical setting, which is critical in providing a deeper understanding of such an important topic.
