Abstract

The purpose of this report is to present a case series of gingiva-colored abutments utilized to meet patients, esthetic needs. The color of the abutment was determined by evaluating the color of the patients, marginal gingiva using a digital shade guide. Thereafter, anodic oxidation was performed on computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufacture abutments. The baseline digital color information was compared with the color of the gingiva after 1.5 years in three patients. The gingival colors as well as the marginal bone and soft tissue levels after 1.5 years were comparable to the baseline values. Thus, the gingiva-colored abutments obtained by anodic oxidation provided improved esthetics, especially for patients with thin gingival biotypes.
