Abstract

Esthetic problems in maxillary central incisors are often difficult to treat with dental implants. It is necessary to preserve the interdental papillae, or regenerate them if they are absent, and minimize the risk of loss of hard or soft tissue. This task may be made easier by the recent introduction of ultratranslucent zirconia, which can be used with custom zirconia abutments to mutually enhance the effectiveness of both materials. This case report describes implant therapy with ultratranslucent monolithic zirconia restorations in the esthetic zone. In this approach, adequate pink esthetics can be achieved by delayed titanium implant placement in conjunction with guided bone regeneration. Ultratranslucent monolithic zirconia restorations with custom zirconia abutments provide predictable esthetic results.
