In certain clinical scenarios, using an intact natural tooth which is in good clinical condition as pontic for interim duration could offer benefits such as excellent color, shape, and size match, positive psychological value, minimal cost, and minimum chairside time with no laboratory procedure involved. Natural tooth pontic suitably modified and bonded to adjacent teeth enables proper healing in the area without compromising the anterior esthetic demands of the patient. In the present study, a clinical technique for immediate interim tooth replacement is being presented, utilizing the clinical crown to assist the clinician in providing an esthetically acceptable treatment option.
