Abstract

The preservation and reproduction of optimal pink & white esthetics are the fundamental aspects of the rehabilitation of a patient, but this can be difficult to achieve alone from both surgical and prosthetic viewpoints. Esthetic rehabilitation can be done well with proper planning. The best outcome can be achieved only through a multidisciplinary approach.

A 17-year-old female patient reported with a chief complaint of missing teeth and an unpleasant smile. Clinical examination revealed a ridge defect and Skeletal Class III malocclusion with constricted maxillary arch and cross bite. An Interdisciplinary approach was planned with  Rapid maxillary expansion to correct the cross bite, Following surgical and orthodontic procedures, Lefort 1 osteotomy, fixed orthodontics, and CAD CAM gingival veneer prosthesis were performed to replace the anterior region of the edentulous area and to correct dental defects respectively. With proper planning and team management strategy the overall treatment was effectively achieved. Any successful outcome should always be approached from a multidisciplinary perspective.
