This article describes the high esthetic value of a single-tooth implant immediately placed in the anterior region using a flapless approach and a custom-made zirconia-ceramic abutment and crown. The case reported illustrates the practical procedure involved in developing natural esthetics with a custom-made zirconia-ceramic prosthesis and abutment. The technique is relatively simple, can be used in a variety of clinical situations, and provides excellent results from an esthetic point of view, which is demonstrated by the results of pink esthetic scores (PES) (9 ± 0.2) and white esthetic scores (WES) (7 ± 0.5) after 4 years.
