Dr Musella, why did you write this book?
Dr Vincenzo Musella: I wanted to compile a series of cases with step-by-step treatment explanations.
What kind of approach/treatment philosophy do you describe in your book?
Dr Vincenzo Musella: My intention was to describe the technical and clinical procedures of dental photography, the esthetic preview, the direct and indirect inverse layering technique as well as the treatment of a displaced tooth with lithium disilicate. The book should serve as a guide that explains the latest and most advanced treatment strategies in dentistry. The text is accompanied by more than 1,300 pictures. It describes the steps that are necessary in order to accomplish predictable and reliable results in a logical and efficient manner.
The topic of dental photography plays an important part in this publication. My book contains a comprehensive description of the photographic equipment required by the dentist and advice on how high-quality photographic records are produced. Furthermore, I provide a detailed description of the technique for fabricating the “esthetic dental preview” – also known as the esthetic mock-up – as well as of the direct and indirect inverse layering technique.
Most of the clinical cases presented in this book have been treated with lithium disilicate restorations. Apart from the traditional indications of this material, I have explored alternative uses, which I have presented in my book.
What is the aim of your book?
Dr Vincenzo Musella: The book aims to impart the described techniques by breaking them down into clear and concise steps.
What has been the response of the book’s readers?
Dr Vincenzo Musella: The response to this book has been very favourable. To date, it has been published in English, German, Italian and Portuguese.
How can one order the book?
Dr Vincenzo Musella: The book is available from Quintessence and Amazon.
