During the past several years, significant advances have occurred in the utilization of osseointegrated implants for the treatment of partially edentulous patients. One of the biggest purposes for treating of these patients is the high demand for improved esthetics, especially in the anterior region. For this esthetics, the new trend in dental implants is the immediate placement and immediate superstructure fabrication. The refined surgical technique, the skillful soft tissue management, and the proper prosthetic coordination are the main factors to achieve natural looking of implant supported prosthesis. The customized provisional restoration and the customized impression coping are recommended for the optimal peri-implant soft tissue contour. The basic concept of Frialit 2 system was the immediate replacement of a tooth with root-analog fixture after extraction. This system guarantees an ideal result in function and esthetics. The ceramic abutment system offers improved quality in the respect of esthetics, fitness, translucency, and biocompatibility. In this clinical report, the final restoration made with IPS Empress 2 crown on the CeraBase abutmen of Frialit 2 system allowed the reproduction of the natural vitality of tooth and adjacent gingiva.
