*Discounted fee based upon purchase of vacation package. If purchased separately, please add $400 to the above fees.


In this lecture, we will take a comprehensive look at the process of achieving esthetic implant restorations, from the diagnosis to the delivery of a single unit to a full arch implant-supported restoration. We’ll start by examining the essential factors that contribute to successful implant esthetics, including material selection, soft tissue management, and restorative techniques. The diagnostic tools and techniques that can be used to plan and execute an esthetically pleasing and functional implant restoration will also be discussed. 

Finally, we’ll explore the delivery phase, discussing the steps involved in fitting, adjusting, and finalizing the restoration for perfect fit and optimal esthetic results. Whether you’re new to implant dentistry or an experienced clinician, this program will equip you with practical tips and strategies for achieving esthetic restorations in the esthetic zone.
