It is our pleasure to inform you that Journal of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry (JERD), the longest standing peer-reviewed journal devoted solely to advancing the knowledge and practice of esthetic dentistry, is our home since 2014. In addition to the International Federation of Esthetic Dentistry (IFED), American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry (AAED) and other prestigious groups, JERD also became the official publication of SCA, with two issues per year devoted to color and appearance in dentistry: 2E (electronic version only) and 5 (printed and electronic issue).

The support of Harald Heymann, the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry, was invaluable in compiling this issue. The same is true for Tom Pierson of Wiley Publishing and the publishing team.

We cordially invite you to keep submitting your manuscripts to us, as we intend to keep the high level established by our parent journal, as JERD is the only journal devoted to esthetic dentistry with Impact Factor. We also strive to be the most competitive and most comprehensive resource when it comes to color and appearance in dentistry. To submit a manuscript, go to and follow the prompts. Author Guidelines are available at

We look forward to keep collaborating with you in supporting and promotinng the best clinical and laboratory practice and research related to color and appearance.
