Creating an Optimal Restoration: Artistic and Functional Considerations Frank Milnar, DDS
For the creation of an optimal restoration, both materials selection and techniques are critical. A basic understanding of art and engineering design can inform a dentist’s decision-making process while choosing materials and while forming the restoration itself. Knowledge of the optical characteristics of teeth, such as color and translucency, as well as the structural characteristics of teeth, such as stress distribution, is essential for esthetically pleasing, enduring restorations.
