Covering an Exposed Implant Crown Margin With a Tunneling Connective Tissue Graft in Portsmouth, NH

DF2 Uncategorized

Our patient hated seeing the grey line where her implant crown met her gums. This happens when the bone or gum tissue around an implant is thin and is not augmented by grafting prior to placing or restoring the implant. Covering the exposed metal crown margin once the recession occurs is very challenging, but in this case we were able to achieve a significant esthetic improvement using a tunneling connective tissue graft. Our patient was very happy that she would not lose her implant and that she could smile confidently once again.
