Abstract

The replacement of a single missing anterior tooth with an implant-supported crown is a demanding therapy. This report describes a treatment in which an anterior maxillary implant was immediately restored with a provisional restoration. During the provisional phase, an optimal emergence profile was created by adjusting the provisional restoration. An impression was made with an individually fabricated impression post for an accurate reproduction of the established emergence profile and, finally, a screw-retained all-ceramic crown was placed. By implementing this protocol, an optimal definitive result could be achieved, together with immediate patient satisfaction. However, cooperation among several disciplines and careful patient selection were required.
