Aesthetics of a Single Central Incisor with Soft Tissue Management
Clinica: International Journal of Brazilian Dentistry featured Yugo’s article titled ‘Aesthetics of a Single Central Incisor with Soft Tissue Management’ in 2014 (originally published in Portuguese).
Meeting patients’ expectations is our goal regardless of the types of cases we treat.
An ‘aesthetically pleasing outcome’ is ultimately judged by the patient. Without their satisfaction, the case should be considered unsuccessful even though there might be no fault with the outcome in the dental professionals’ eyes.

Today, accurate colour matching is not as challenging as in the past, thanks to a technique/software such as eLAB (developed by Sascha Hein) and Matisse (developed by Marat Awdaljan).

This article presents examples of natural aesthetics, focusing on various elements, including sub-gingival contour and soft tissue management with implant restorations.
