The dental materials science is an integration of science of biology, chemistry and physics. Dental materials science is advancing rapidly with new materials and technology being developed to improve the clinical performance of materials. In addition to the development of new materials, increased attention is being directed at the biological compatibility of these materials locally or systematically. This textbook covers the scientific perspective of the existing and the newly developed materials used in dentistry and their biological, chemical, physical, mechanical and optical properties are illustrated in detail. The clinical aspects of dental materials covered in this text book enable the clinicians as well as the academicians to upgrade their knowledge in the field of dentistry. This textbook is divided into basic dental materials science, laboratory and clinical dental materials and detailed information about each material was provided along with the figures wherever necessary. This textbook also gives the information about the modifications, developments and recent advances in dental materials. The definitive confinement of each chapter along with conclusive suggestions for further reading makes this edition unique.
