Abstract


Lately esthetic rehabilitation has come to be a demanding treatment as a way to correct malposed as well as missing anterior dentition, the advent of creating an esthetic smile has become a part of routine dental practice. An attractive or appealing smile sincerely enhances the recognition of an individual in our society with the aid of enhancing the initial impact in interpersonal relationships. Any esthetic correction calls for right expertise and knowledge. Such rehabilitation can be achieved successfully with the aid of numerous treatment approaches. Orthodontic treatment is one of the most conservative approach for such cases but it is not an acceptable treatment option for most of the patients due to various reasons like long treatment time, financial constraints, appearance during the therapy, and relapse after the treatment. Alternatively, endodontic approach combined with prosthodontics offers a brief, reliable and economic treatment modality for such cases. Placement of implants has also become a treatment of choice for replacement of teeth in esthetic zone with advantages like preservation of unrestored adjacent teeth and halting the resorption of edentulous spaces to provide support for the prosthesis. This case report illustrates the multidisciplinary approach for rehabilitating aesthetics in anterior region.
