Patient-Specific Gingiva-Colored Abutments: A Case Series
Takashi Sumi, DDS, PhD/Kenji Takeshita, DDS/Takuro Takeichi, DDS, PhD/Paulo G. Coelho, DDS, PhD/Ryo Jimbo, DDS, PhD

Ideal dental implant esthetics encompasses the biologic architecture as well as the restorative biomaterials. Attaining the ideal dental abutment design for customized biologic adaption and strength for longevity, function, and esthetics is a challenge. Opacified abutments have been utilized to optimize esthetic results.

“Patient-Specific Gingiva-Colored Abutments: A Case Series” by Sumi and coworkers, featured in the 4/2014 issue of the International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry, introduces a novel technique involving the use of a custom shade guide to adjust the color of abutments (through anodic oxidation) to the desired hue of the gingiva for optimal esthetics. This process allows use of titanium abutments with a shift to ideal color. We are excited to publish this new technique.
