      Depends on what you mean by 'ceramics'. There are so many materials in use, no one book covers it all. Metal ceramics, various pressables, FCZ or layered Zr? Are you looking for materials science, form and function gnathology stuff or..?

      Quintessence Publishing is a good source. LMT or Spectrum magazines. DLN. Air Force manuals.

      Oliver Brix 'Fascinating All Ceramics' is worth a look.

      I working this job for 10years,
      Just have a lightning hit me
      And let me know I'm doing the wrong teeth with wrong way and wrong theory
      I believe every thing have the basic,
      Maybe in my country, the theory too old , or teachers teach us the wrong thing.
      For example, 1years ago I will mix the transparency and Enamel!!
      I don't know why do that, just lab owner teach me to do

      So just think I am the fresh man just in to colleague or tech school
      Is there have the important book
      Like ubassy or Oliver book the member sharing in this post?
      It will be helpful

      Yamamoto's book on Metal Ceramics is still a excellent foundation book of metals and ceramics. Even though much of what he did was with a translucent
      porcelain overlay, in which you can use to much and lower the value, it's still a excellent book if you can get your hands on one.

      Maybe that is why you were taught to mix trans with Inc, to help get the translucent effect while maintaining some "opacity" to keep from graying out. Part of the reason for Shofu developing the opal porcelains was to try to make it easier to get the translucent inc effect without lowering the value, as well as for the opal effect. They still mentioned not to use it in some situations, like if the inc edge was going to be really thin, or that a metal lingual or occlusal may lower the value (my books at home, so I can't look it up).
