Loss of teeth in the anterior region leads to compromised aesthetics. It is physiologically as well as socially damaging situation. Tooth loss can be due to excessive bone loss, trauma or other endodontic reasons. The replacement of lost tooth depends on several factors. After removal of the tooth for a time being, temporisation may be required before placement of permanent restoration. Permanent replacement can be in the form of removable prosthesis or fixed partial dentures. The first line of treatment after extraction of anterior teeth, irrespective of final restoration, is placement of temporary prosthesis. This article describes a case of natural tooth used as a pontic splinted to adjacent teeth using a fibre-reinforced splint and composite following extraction of tooth in the maxillary anterior region.
