Esthetic Integration in Implant Prosthodontics

German Gallucci

This lecture emphasizes the importance of objective evaluation criteria for esthetic results and long-term success. The difficulty in categorizing some treatment outcomes as satisfactory or poor is explained. The importance of emergence profile development via transitional and provisional prostheses prior to placement of the definitive prosthesis is emphasized. As a key factor in esthetic papilla generation, the distance from implant shoulder to marginal mucosa is described in detail. Finally, this presentation outlines the roles of material selection, framework design, shape of healing abutment, and porcelain characterization, translucency, outline, and surface texture. A brief discussion of pink and white esthetic scores is also included.
