Sudden loss of anterior teeth is a catastrophic event for a patient. The missing anterior teeth have implications in how one presents themselves to others and the psychological effects of how we feel about ourselves. Sudden tooth loss in the esthetic zone of the anterior region can be due to trauma, periodontal disease, or endodontic failure. If the teeth are intact, it is easiest to use them as natural pontics and bond it to the adjacent teeth with fiber reinforcement ribbon and adhesive composite resin. When the teeth are not usable a denture teeth or a composite resin pontics can be shaped to fit the space of the missing teeth.
