This study aimed at describing an alternative approach to the clinical condition of unfavorable implant positioning and unfavorable initial prosthetic planning. This article reports a viable alternative for these situations: the use of single crowns placed over implants with artificial gingiva. This technique reestablishes proper papillae region and proves to be an effective alternative with esthetic benefits and easy cleaning, as well as an important factor that favours the maintenance of peri-implant health.
