Tooth replacement in the esthetic zone presents a challenging situation for the clinician. Contouring the soft-tissues around single- and multi-unit unit implant restoration is critical to achieving an esthetically pleasing final restoration. Duplicating the emergence profile is equally important for effective communication between the clinician and laboratory technician. This article presents a simple, quick, and convenient impression technique for easy and accurate transfer of the tissue contours to the working cast. This precludes the step of doing the jig trial resulting in a decrease in overall treatment time.
