Colin will guide us through the treatment process, starting from the initial use of a partial denture to the recent extraction of the tooth. The case, planned under a Type 2c protocol, involved detailed CBCT and IOS scans, showing suitable bone volume and a favorable tissue biotype, despite the presence of an adjacent tooth with a porcelain veneer.
This session highlights the “Smile in A Box” protocol, featuring the placement of a Straumann BLT implant and, if necessary, the use of Bio-Oss and Bio-Gide. Colin’s expertise will be particularly evident in managing the aesthetic challenges posed by the anterior zone and the presence of adjacent restorations.
Watch as Colin demonstrates shaping the gingival architecture with a provisional crown and capturing the emergence profile for the final ceramic crown. This approach is key to achieving optimal aesthetic results and ensuring precise implant placement.
