Perfect esthetic results require a tooth-like foundation. Only the use of individual abutments enables the design of an emergence profile that closely mimics a natural tooth crown. The gingiva is optimally supported and the emergence profile gives the restoration a natural tooth shape.
Cement‑retained bridges achieve superior esthetics by concealing the screw channels and individual veneering. In contrast to this are directly screw‑retained bridges that have the advantage of avoiding cement joints along with a design that enables them to be removed in part for easy checkups.
