This completely revised and updated edition presents the theory and technical procedures for physically constructing an esthetic metal-ceramic restoration using contemporary dental porcelain systems. Readers are introduced to the complex technical language of this technology as they are patiently guided through each step of the process. New to this edition is an increased emphasis on evidence-based documentation; information on biocompatibility, including indications of intra- and extraoral allergic responses; explanations of the rationale for variations in substructure design; expanded dental materials content; updated dental porcelain and dental alloy classifications; firing schedules for current products; and much more. Written specifically for dental technology students, dental students, graduate students and residents in advanced education programs, and advanced technical courses.
