Achieving anterior implant aesthetics is a challenging and demanding procedure. To create implant restorations with harmonious gingival contour that emulate nature is a fusion of science and art. Understanding biologic and physiologic limitations of soft and hard tissue will facilitate predictability in simple to complex cases.

This 1-day master-class is designed for the restorative dentists, periodontists and lab technicians.

It will focus on current implant philosophies and methodologies for replacing currently missing teeth and the management of patients who will be losing a tooth or teeth in the aesthetic zone.

Emphasis will be placed on the diagnosis and treatment planning, surgical, and prosthetic of soft and hard tissue for optimal implant aesthetics from simple to complex situations.

In additional, long term follow-ups (up to 20 years) of success and failures of aesthetic reconstructions and predictability of bone and soft tissue grafting will be discussed.
