The BLX implant was positioned according to the prosthetic plan (Fig. 17). The multifunctional guide was fixed to the temporary abutment with flowable resin (Figs. 18,19), and the slim concave emergence profile concept was applied to the subgingival portion (Fig. 20).
The final prosthesis was prepared in a digital workflow with images captured by the Straumann® Virtuo Intraoral Scanner and a CADCAM process using Straumann CARES Visual. The intraoral scanner captured the 3D position of the implant with the aid of a ScanBody screwed to the BLX implant (Fig. 21). The STL file (Fig. 22) was generated, and we used the Straumann® C series (Fig. 23), to mill a customized lithium disilicate abutment (Figs. 24,25). This customized abutment was cemented extraorally to an RB/WB Variobase® (Fig. 26) with Multilink® cement. A lithium disilicate veneer was placed on this custom abutment (Figs. 27,28). The restoration was seated and screwed to a torque of 35 Ncm (Fig. 29).
