The study of facial aesthetics and beauty entails a comprehensive evaluation of proportion and harmony as related to individual, ethnic, and cultural ideals. These philosophical and conceptual standards are immeasurable in defining anatomic- and disease-related processes as well as their interrelated solutions. To this end, Dr Naini thoughtfully integrates historical, clinical, and surgical perspectives in the medical fields ranging from maxillofacial to plastic and reconstructive surgery. The author elegantly provides the science and art of facial aesthetics with emphasis given to analysis of the craniofacial complex, facial aesthetic units, and clinical evaluation, in addition to smile and dental-occlusal relationships. Furthermore, the author has undertaken a detailed approach in presenting dental esthetics, which makes this publication rather unique. The current text offers 24 chapters with 621 illustrations, tables, and images, which allows a broad appeal to both dental and medical specialists. Unfortunately, no DVD or electronic text is available at this time.
