Abstract

This article demonstrates a case that successfully rehabilitated the maxillary anterior missing tooth area with a single-tooth implant prosthesis by integrating three-dimensional face scan data into the computer-aided design software. An extraoral transfer jig was self-invented to achieve this purpose, and a handheld face scanner app was used to accomplish economic benefits. Not only was the protocol convenient and efficient for both the patient and clinician, but it also resulted in a satisfactory outcome.
