Online Article: Prosthetic Management of Minor Soft Tissue Discrepancy Due to Facially Placed Implants: A Report of Two Cases

Implants and/or restorative components that are positioned facially present a challenge to created ideal facial soft tissue contours. The following case reports display how modification of the restorative components, namely, abutment and crown, will influence the soft tissue height and contour when minor tissue discrepancies exist due to nonideal implant placement.
