For complex esthetic cases, with or without implant rehabilitations, in the esthetically risky frontal area, there are a lot of key factors determining the individual outcome. In the planning phase, it is vital to bear in mind that to end up with the treatment goal, we must proceed in a manageable and realistic approach. Having perfect implant position, with a predictable pink and stable soft tissue, is certainly one critical surgical factor. However, there are additional important surgical factors, such as the consideration of interocclusal distance, speech and motor control, and aspects of functional movement. New approaches of combining digital and analog work methods, will allow the dentist/dental technician team to plan appropriate tooth shape and length as well as ideal implant position. By using step by step model analysis, intra oral mock-ups, and long-term temporaries, both surgical and restorative phases of the case can lead to a predictable outcome.

Learning objectives:

  1. Backward planning for an optimal esthetic outcome.
  2. How to stabilize bone, implant and soft tissue.
  3. Design of long term provisional.
  4. Stable ceramic definitive restorations.
