When it comes to esthetics, less can be more

Designed for the anterior

For implant cases in the anterior, the final esthetic result is extremely important for the patient. Our new Slim Abutments are designed to support excellent soft tissue results, helping the clinician to meet patient expectations.

The narrow design of the Slim Abutments increases space for soft tissue grafting, providing the room needed to build up plenty of healthy mucosa. This can help create sufficient soft tissue volume for the best possible esthetic result.

Dr. Iñaki Gamborena, Spain

"I’ve been working with Slim Abut­ments for some time now, and I’m delighted with the results. More im­portantly, so are my patients. These are now my go-to abut­ments for anterior cases, where only the very best esthetic outcome will do. There isn’t another product like it on the market."

“This new abutment concept has greatly improved the esthetic result in many of my cases. It gives me more space to place the soft tissue graft around the implants. The narrow shape of the Slim Healing and Slim Temporary Abutments helps with handling the graft and with placing it in interproximal areas. This results in a better soft tissue graft overall, improving the papillae in my anterior region implant restorations.”
