Dentists, especially prosthodontists, often face a difficult aesthetic situation of having to remove the anterior tooth because of trauma, advanced periodontal disease or endodontic problems. Many people are reluctant to undergo tooth removal, followed by its placement with an artificial tooth.
An acrylic, removable, partial denture can present challenges with regards to matching colour, size and shape, and it often requires substantial modification to achieve an acceptable appearance. Using the natural tooth as a pontic offers the benefits of it being right with respect to size, shape and colour. Moreover, the positive psychological value to the patient in using his or her natural tooth is an added benefit. Here, a case report has been presented, wherein an immediate, interim tooth replacement was made by using a clinical crown as an aesthetically acceptable treatment option.
