Achieving or maintaining optimal aesthetics requires detailed treatment planning and sequencing of therapy, and often a multi-disciplinary approach. Aesthetic evaluation utilizing facial aesthetic design to diagnose tooth position, minimally invasive preparation techniques and the role of accurate provisionals to communicate with the patient/surgeon/ceramist will be discussed. Surgically, a review of aesthetic crown lengthening, advanced root coverage techniques, ridge augmentation and site development to enhance aesthetic outcomes and achieve ideal gingival margins for teeth and implants will be discussed.
