Zirconia implants, Veneers, Patient satisfaction


The present case describes the clinical and radiographic results of 24 months of two-piece injection-molded zirconia implants with immediate loading, as well as the aesthetic and functional planning performed in the anterior maxilla. Case presentation: A 36-year-old female patient was referred to a dental school due to dissatisfaction with the aesthetics of her smile and the absence of dental elements 22 and 24. Prosthetic rehabilitation of the anterior maxilla was performed, including implant-supported prosthesis with zirconia implants and ceramic veneers, using a digital workflow. The patient was followed up for 24 months, with good clinical and radiographic results. Conclusions: The aesthetic and functional rehabilitation performed in the patient's maxilla, with veneers and ceramic crowns, was successful and contributed to the patient's psychological and emotional well-being, in addition to restoring occlusal stability, through the orientation of the canine and the adequate protrusion of the anterior teeth.
