Presentation Title: Towards a biologically-oriented aesthetic implant restoration at the smile zone. Where do we stand?

Synopsis:
In order to achieve a natural-looking result of artificial implant restorations, the operator must, before choosing a specific implant system and the restorative materials, analyze the operative site and plan for a healthy integration of the whole restorative complex and the implant fixture within the surrounding living tissues. At the smile zone a primary goal is also to obtain natural-looking peri-implant soft tissue embracing a natural-looking functioning crown.
 
The accumulated insights of the last 20 years on bone and tissue response (and alterations) around implants, enable biologic-based implementation of different surgical and restorative approaches, so that the abutment-crown complex has more chances to blend in with the adjacent tissue and dentition in complete health and harmony. Unfortunately esthetically - this goal is not always predictable and achievable.
 
This presentation highlights the biologic concepts utilized when executing implant-based restorations at the smile zone, providing the audience with a comprehensive understanding of the state of the art clinical techniques implemented and their limitations.
