Ultimate esthetics requires an interdisciplinary clinical and biologic approach to treating patients. This presentation focuses on fine tuning our cases so that facial tissues and interproximal papillae will look their best and remain healthy for years to come. Restorative dentistry, periodontal plastic surgery, and orthodontics will all be discussed, along with the proper sequencing of these disciplines. In addition, new techniques in socket preservation will be evaluated along with new innovations in implant design as part of more advanced treatment plans.
