Today, adhesive techniques for partial crowns and bridges have become routine protocol, complementing established treatment options for fixed prosthodontics. Minimally invasive or noninvasive treatment options such as direct bonding with composite, veneers or resin-bonded bridges greatly help to reduce esthetic, technical, and biologic complications and increase the potential for reintervention. Therefore, these alternatives to anterior implants have gained increasing importance. Consequently, this book covers a wide spectrum of therapeutic means to deal with gaps in the anterior region. The content is divided into the following sub-themes: moving (the orthodontic approach), bonding (the restorative, noninvasive approach), placing pontics (the reconstructive approach with bonded or full-crown bridges), and placing implants (the implantologic approach).

The book is based on long-term clinical experience, with cases that are precisely described and richly documented with full-colour images. It is not a literature review but rather a type of atlas that presents its practical and knowledgeable content in the context of the relevant literature. It can therefore be regarded as an inspiring recipe book for clinical success.
