This presentation is intended to introduce and reinforce concepts central to achieving reproducible dental implant esthetics. The first issue is the creation and maintenance of proper alveolar and architecture. The second is the matter of creating tooth like transmucosal form using proper abutment design and materials for both provisional and final restorations. Finally, the selection and proper utilization of different materials for the prostheses must be considered in relationship to the targeted functional and esthetic needs. Several ongoing clinical investigations will be reviewed to provide insight into relevant unanswered questions concerning all of these matters. Step by step clinical procedures will be illustrated to indicate how the clinical procedures advocated for reproducible dental implant esthetics are based on sound evidence (where possible) and our current understanding of biology and materials science.
