In this, the very last lecture by Dr Paul King, he gives a history of the overview of how dental treatments, dental materials and the dental options have improved over the years. Through a series of clinical cases, Dr King provides a great insight into how the clinical techniques and materials available to restore damaged, worn and missing teeth have improved and what options can be used today. Very useful for the practitioner who sees such cases on a daily basis in practice.
