"This nearly 800 page book is a terrific collection of comprehensively referenced by Dr George Freeman who has taken contributions from over 50 very exprienced names in the world of Esthetic Dentistry.It is beautifully illustrated and this quality  is consistent thorughout pretty much all of the book.What I especially liked is that virtually every aspect of clinical dentistry has been touched on with an aesthetic slant or view...It is a reference book and will be particularyly useful sitting in your practice and much of it will be relevant for many years to come. I consider it a good buy for any dentist interested in carrying out his/her denistry aesthetically and we all know that ought to apply to evey dentist."
