Achieving ideal esthetics in osseointegrated prostheses. Part II. The single unit
There are several advantages to the CeraOne single-tooth abutment. It seats directly onto the fixture, forming a nonrotating joint. A new type of gold alloy screw that can be tightened to 32 N/cm is used. In addition, the restoration is constructed on a prefabricated ceramic cap onto which porcelain is directly baked. A case report illustrates the technique and the highly esthetic results of such single-tooth replacement.
