Abstract

This case report presents an alternative treatment option for the premature loss of a maxillary anterior tooth due to severe periodontitis. A natural tooth pontic acid-etch prosthesis was fabricated using the patient's clinical crown from the extracted tooth. This measure proved to be a very adequate, esthetic treatment solution before a permanent restorative plan could be developed for the patient's long term dental needs.
