OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate an optical solution to eliminate the undesirable shine-through effect of implants on peri-implant mucosa by selecting an optimized implant neck color based on an objective and quantifiable method. MATERIAL AND METHODS The optical effect of color strips on 15 peri-implant mucosal sites of 14 patients with Straumann single-tooth implant replacements in the maxillary anterior region was analyzed. The color differences between the peri… CONTINUE READING
