Abstract

To obtain optimal and predictable aesthetics, deficiencies caused by soft and particularly hard tissue loss can be managed by various methods, such as orthodontic tooth eruption, socket preservation, and guided bone regeneration. However, in complex cases, these methods are often insufficient. Here, the authors introduce advanced concepts in aesthetic implant dentistry, such as "Aesthetic Site Foundation", "Aesthetic Guided Bone Regeneration" and "Implant Rectangle" that will guide the clinician in the quest to optimal aesthetic outcomes.
