Bottom Line: A 44-year-old woman visited our department with an avulsed tooth that had fallen out on the previous day and was completely dry.The FRC framework and the pontic were fabricated using a duplicated cast model and nanofilled composite resin.This technique not only enables the clinician to replace a missing tooth immediately after extraction for minimizing esthetic problems, but it also decreases both tooth reduction and cost.

ABSTRACT
A fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) fixed prosthesis is an innovative alternative to a traditional metal restoration, as it is a conservative treatment method. This case report demonstrates a detailed procedure for restoring a missing anterior tooth with an FRC. A 44-year-old woman visited our department with an avulsed tooth that had fallen out on the previous day and was completely dry. This tooth was replanted, but it failed after one year. A semi-direct technique was used to fabricate a FRC fixed partial prosthesis for its replacement. The FRC framework and the pontic were fabricated using a duplicated cast model and nanofilled composite resin. Later on, interproximal contact, tooth shape, and shade were adjusted at chairside. This technique not only enables the clinician to replace a missing tooth immediately after extraction for minimizing esthetic problems, but it also decreases both tooth reduction and cost.

Figure 12: One-year recall. (a) Labial view; (b) Palatal view; (c) Periapical view.

Mentions: At the 1-year recall, the patient stated that she was satisfied with the appearance and function of the prosthesis. The pontic area and resin-bonded margins were clinically sound, and the abutment teeth were intact (Figure 12). The pontic was in good condition, and the desired shade of the teeth had been maintained.
