Authors(5) :-Dr. LakshmanaRao.Bathala, Dr. Parul Singhal, Dr. VikasGupta, Dr.Vikas Punia, Dr.Rajesh Naidu. T

With the ever changing and ever growing developments in the field of materials and techniques, new vistas are open to us to provide our patients with better treatment modalities. A new and simple technique for the patients who desire an esthetic tooth replacement before any definitive Prosthodontic and/or orthodontic treatment is described in this case-report. In this technique, a provisional prosthesis is fabricated, using an acrylic tooth, resin cement and an orthodontic wire which is also cost effective and less time consuming. This provisional prosthesis may be used where aesthetics is a prime concern and a definitive treatment has to be delayed for some period of time.
