Correcting adverse soft tissue responses around crowns requires specific cervical contours coupled with surface smoothness and marginal fit. This presentation will show how these morphologic principles have been used to correct adverse gingival reactions with crowns on natural teeth and then show how these principles can be used around implant crowns in the esthetic zone to encourage incisal migration of the peri-implant mucosa.
