In times of social media and selfie-hypes, patients’ expectations concerning dental treatment are increasing. Achieving a prosthetic ideal esthetic outcome using implants in esthetic sites is often challenging. Pink and white esthetics are influenced by the prosthetic workflow. This thesis aimed to investigate factors influencing the final esthetic outcome (provisional phase, abutment selection, vertical growth of the adjacent teeth) of implant supported prosthesis using objective esthetic parameters and including patient`s perception of the final treatment.
