Master the use of dental materials in the clinic and dental laboratory and stay current with this ever-changing field with Craig's Restorative Dental Materials, 13th Edition. From fundamental concepts to advanced skills, this comprehensive text details everything you need to know to understand the scientific basis for selecting dental materials when designing and fabricating restorations. This practical, clinically relevant approach to the selection and use of dental materials challenges you to retain and apply your knowledge to realistic clinical scenarios, giving you an authoritative advantage in dental practice.

  • Comprehensive information on restorative dental materials provides insight into both the fundamentals and the latest practical knowledge in the field.Problem-solving approach presents cases with solutions at the end of each chapter, providing an opportunity to apply and test important principles.Thoroughly revised content includes the latest information on: optical, thermal, and electrical properties; mechanical properties; preventive materials; composites; and impression materials.The latest standards in the field are covered, including biocompatibility and standards of dental materials.Easy-to-follow organization progresses according to the way in which material is most often taught in dental schools.An appendix contains useful references such as weights and measurements, conversion tables, metric weights, and more.Each chapter concludes with a list of references for further reading, divided by topic sections.
