Abstract

Dental implants have become the preferred treatment option for missing teeth replacement due to their functional and restorative benefits. However, placing implants in the esthetic zone remains a challenge due to anatomical factors and the need for optimal emergence profile. The use of custom abutments and regenerative techniques in this case report resulted in a successful implant-supported restoration with excellent functional and aesthetic outcomes. The case highlights the importance of proper treatment planning and the use of advanced techniques in implant dentistry to achieve optimal results.
