Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the esthetic result of monophasic zirconium dental implants, placed in the highly esthetic areas of the jaws. In this case series the results of 12 monophasic zirconium dental implants placed in highly esthetic areas of 8 patients (6 male and 2 female). For each implant the Pink Esthetic Score (PES) and the White Esthetic Score (WES) were evaluated. All implants were inserted in fresh postextraction sites. The esthetic parameters PES/ WES has given a total average value of 15.5 ± 1.5. Analyzing the two indices individually, the PES has given a value equal to 7.5 ± 1 and the WES has given a value equal to 8 ± 1.13. Both values obtained indicate the achievement of an absolutely satisfactory esthetic result. Within the limits of this study, the zirconium dental implants seems to give excellent results with regard to the esthetic result and for the maintenance of peri-implant soft tissues.
