Choose a Different Shade for the Root

A 63-year-old lady breaks a lower incisor (Fig.1 B).  An implant is placed immediately after extraction (Fig.2-5).

When the implant heals (Fig.6,7), a crown is fabricated (Fig.8 C).  The shape and shade of the root look very natural, as close as those of the neighboring incisors.
