Author(s):

Ernesto A. Lee, DMD;Sang K. Jun, CDT

Date Added:

1/1/2000


Summary:

The conceptual basis of restorative-driven implant dentistry is well established among clinicians. Its implementation includes the development of a prosthetic blueprint that will serve as a guide throughout therapy. While these concepts may be applied to prosthetic dentistry in general, their benefits are most compelling in the treatment of the aesthetic zone. This article demonstrates a systematic multidimensional approach for the establishment and incorporation of definitive aesthetic objectives throughout the diagnostic, adjunctive, and restorative treatment phases.
