Objectives: Main purpose of this review was to present an update on various coating materials utilized in improving the surface chemistry of the dental implants. Methods: Literature search was carried out in various on-line databases such as PubMed, Medline, Google scholar, EBSCO, Wiley Science Library, and Saudi Digital Library using appropriate keywords (dental implant surface coatings, dental implant surface modifiers, and dental surface coatings). Results: Total of 569 studies were retrieved. All the relevant studies among them were reviewed and compiled. Conclusion: Current implant surface's biomimetic coatings offer many benefits compared to the traditional plasma sprayed coatings. Further incorporation of biomimetic coatings with various material has lead improvement in mechanical and biological properties of implants.
