LOZANO SANCHEZ, Ángela María  and  RODRIGUEZ E, Olga L. Post-extraction implant using custom-modified ceramic screw abutment. Case report. Rev. Odont. Mex [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.4, pp.262-266. ISSN 1870-199X.

Greyish pigmentation of the mucosa around implants after abutment insertion and crown cementation is considered an esthetic failure. This pigmentation is due to use of metallic abutments or a thin periodontal biotype. The purpose of the present report was to improve gingival esthetic appearance of patients with thin biotype, by modifying color in the sub-mucosal region of a screwed-on, custom made, zirconium abutment, successfully improving gingival aesthetics in a right lateral incisor.

Keywords : Zirconium; peri-implant mucosa; abutment.
