Achievement of optimal aesthetics on implants in the anterior region can be difficult due to inherent differences to the natural dentition. An important consideration is the peri-implant soft tissues which can be modified to create a more natural emergence profile and contour. The methods with which this can be achieved vary as can methods for recording soft tissue changes and relaying this to technician colleagues. This review appraises some techniques available for the manipulation of the soft tissue profile on single implant restorations.
