This picture shows a temporary crown on a prepared standard straight dental implant abutment in the tooth #6 position. Much care was taken to precisely position the dental implant in the upper jaw. This means the implant is aproximately 25% off from the angle of the final position of the desired tooth (crown) #6. Using the latest technology, a custom abutment and procelain fused to metal crown were fabricated. Although I have been placing and restoring dental implants since 1989, huge advancements in technology have made the esthetics of resortations (crowns, bridges, overdentures and partials) significantly more natural looking.
