Abstract

This two-part treatment series describes the examination, planning, and prosthetic treatment of a 17-year-old female patient whose maxillary central incisors were traumatically lost at the age of 9 years. The first part presented analysis of function and esthetics, and the advantages and disadvantages of the different prosthodontic treatment options were discussed. In this second part of the article, treatment selection, along with the rationale for the decision, the sequence of treatment steps, and the final result are revealed.
