COSMETIC DENTISTRY: Enhancing Soft Tissue Health and Esthetics through the Placement of All-Ceramic Restoration

April 1, 2001 Thomas Trinkner, DDS, and Paul Steigerwald, DDS

Abstract: The interrelated and combined benefits of placing all-ceramic restorations include enhanced esthetics, overall health of the soft tissues and an improvement in patients’ oral health and hygiene habits. These benefits result from the many material characteristics and specific placement protocol associated with modern all-ceramic restorations. However, despite very positive anecdotal testimonials regarding the soft tissue benefits of all-ceramic restorations, more long-term in-vivo research is necessary to demonstrate a direct correlation between the placement of all-ceramic restorations and improved soft tissue esthetics and gingival health.
