Abstract

Restoring missing maxillary incisors with implants is both challenging and demanding for the clinician. Decisions concerning the number, position, and diameter of implants are crucial to achieve an optimal esthetic result, especially in patients with increased vertical and horizontal overlap. This clinical report presents a treatment where 2 narrow implants, placed in the maxillary lateral incisor positions of the maxilla, support the restoration of the 4 missing incisors. Despite meticulous surgical and restorative treatment procedures, the use of gingiva-colored veneering material was required to achieve a satisfactory esthetic outcome.
