With a focus on the newest techniques and materials for ultimate esthetic outcomes, QDT 2014 features original articles on minimally invasive indirect restorations, model-guided soft tissue regeneration, opacity control using pressed ceramics, complex integrated esthetic rehabilitation, CAD/CAM tooth-colored occlusal splints, shade interpretation, optical phenomena, and the art of visual thinking. This year’s State of the Art article by Paulo Kano and Nelson Silva describes the Anatomic Shell Technique for mimicking nature. Sillas Duarte et al provide the year’s Biomaterials Update on ceramic-reinforced polymers—novel CAD/CAM hybrid restorative materials.
