The article presents a review of the biological interfaces in esthetic dentistry that happen at the European Association of Esthetic Dentistry (EAED) Active Members Meeting in October 2010 in Tremezzo, Italy. It says that peri-implant restorative interface is a significant subject for scientific research since is may be the key to longevity of implant restorations. It discusses factors identified to interact with the peri-implant tissues such as the influence of the vertical localization of the crestal bone and the proportion and localization of the peri-implant soft tissues. It also states that essays which discuss the quality of peri-implant tissues and the properties of the trans-mucosal abutment restorative material for the peri-implant soft tissue.
