SIMEDA® PROSTHESIS WITH A ZIRCONIA THIMBLE CROWN

A patient comes in for consultation for a zirconia implant bridge restoration, but the axis of the screw holes is less than optimal. The axis cannot be adapted. 

We suggest making casts and caps for 6 teeth, so that the screw holes are not visible.

Conclusion 

The placement of adjustment caps on an implant bridge has resulted in real aesthetic benefit for the patient.
