Abstract

Proper treatment planning and precise evaluation of various parameters (e.g., bone volume, soft tissues, dental anatomy, surgical and prosthetic components) are crucial for an aesthetic implant restoration. The three-stage approach of the emergence profile concept guides the selection of implant, healing abutment, and provisional prosthesis. Adaptation of the implant, provisional prosthesis, and crown restoration stages and their harmonious integration with the soft tissues enable the development of an optimal aesthetic result. This article demonstrates the incorporation of the emergence profile concept for aesthetic implant placement.
