Key restorative factors in aesthetic implantology
In the anterior sector, restorations on implants must be functional and aesthetic. The definitive restorations not only have to mimic the white aesthetic but also have to be respectful of the entire peri-implant complex through a correct design of the emergence profile. The use of zirconium as a restorative material is sometimes a challenge when designing the emergence profile of restorations, mainly due to the need to use intermediate titanium abutments. Due to the angulation of the premaxilla, it is common for the emergence of the implant to require the use of dynamic screws or to perform cemented restorations. The different restorative alternatives in unitary implants in the anterior sector will be reviewed both analogically and digitally.
