The placement of dental implants in the anterior maxilla is challenging for clinicians due to patients’ high esthetic demands and the
difficult management of peri-implant tissues. Peri-implant tissue complications seriously affect the critical esthetics of anterior implants.
Therefore, preventative measures should be considered during implant treatment. In this case, implant placement was performed in
#11 immediately after the patient lost #11 due to trauma because the patient had sufficient bone height and thickness and no pathologic
conditions. One-mm labial and lingual distances between the implant andthe bone were observed with no sign of dehiscences, and
GBR or tissue grafts were not required. The final impression, which was taken 5 months after the placement, confirmed the formation
of interdental papillae and labial gingiva. The final restoration with a zirconia custom abutment provided successful esthetic results.
