I graduated from the Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery in 1985. Dentistry, like everything else in this fast paced age we live in, has evolved. The field of dental implants has gone from a small niche to mainstream in this time period. Zirconia dental implant abutments while relatively new, are used routinely by implant dentists to achieve optimal esthetics. I have been using zirconia dental implant abutments in my Palm Harbor dentist office for quite some time. This young mans smile was completed in July 2012 in my Tampa Bay, Florida area dentist office.
The restoration of dental implants in the “smile zone” requires special attention. In this picture, a zirconia dental implant abutment can be seen in the tooth #9 position.
