Abstract

In a single implant restoration of maxillary anterior teeth, it is difficult to accomplish an aesthetic restoration of the implant prosthesis in the case of gingival recession and bone defect problems. To maintain aesthetic stability in the long term, it is important to place the implant in the ideal position as well as the recovery of the soft tissue and harmony with the prosthesis. Not only ideal implant position but also the harmony with surrounding soft tissues are important to fabricate aesthetic implant prosthesis for these cases. for these cases, a 47- years -old male with lowered level of osseous crest and gingival recession on maxillary anterior tooth was treated with guided bone regeneration and gingival recontouring.
