Sudden loss of an anterior tooth as a result of trauma, periodontal disease, or endodontic failure is a true esthetic emergency for a patient. A missing anterior tooth has implications for how we present ourselves to others and affects how we feel about ourselves. If the tooth or tooth crown is still intact and the patient brings it with them to the dental office, it is easiest to use it as a natural tooth pontic, joining it to the adjacent teeth with an adhesive composite with fiber reinforcement ribbon. When the tooth crown is not available, a denture tooth or a composite resin pontic can be shaped to fit the space of the missing tooth.
