The restoration of implants in the esthetic zone varies significantly from implant treatment in other areas. Successful outcomes require not just osseointegration of the implant fixture itself, but also the creation of appropriate gingival architecture, including selection and fabrication of an abutment and crown system that balances aesthetic and functional demands. Special attention will be given to provisional techniques, abutment and crown selection, impression techniques, and gingival shaping. The techniques and materials demonstrated will balance efficient and practical techniques with clinical results and scientific evidence.
