To attain a natural look in ceramic restorations, the technician must be able to successfully reproduce three critical aspects of a natural tooth: single-tooth morphology, tooth alignment, and natural tooth color.

This beautifully illustrated atlas provides technicians with images and information that will help them produce functional and esthetic restorations.
