Bottom Line: Two parts then were laser welded (Master 1000, Elettrolaser Italy, Verona, Italy) and indirect lab composite (3 M ESPE Sinfony, St. Paul, MN, USA) was built up.The patient had successful result, confirmed by clinical and radiographic examinations.Before the patient is ready to get a permanent restoration later on, this provisional restoration will be used.

ABSTRACT
This article presents the application of laser welding technique to fabricate an orthodontic mini-implant provisional restoration in missing area after limited orthodontic treatment. A 15-year-old boy case is presented. Two-piece orthodontic C-implant was placed after regaining space for missing right mandibular central incisor. Due to angular deviation of implant, customized abutment was required. Ready-made head part was milled and lingual part of customized abutment was made with non-precious metal. Two parts then were laser welded (Master 1000, Elettrolaser Italy, Verona, Italy) and indirect lab composite (3 M ESPE Sinfony, St. Paul, MN, USA) was built up. The patient had successful result, confirmed by clinical and radiographic examinations. Before the patient is ready to get a permanent restoration later on, this provisional restoration will be used. This case shows that a two-piece orthodontic C-implant system can be used to maintain small edentulous space after orthodontic treatment.

Mentions: The posttreatment intraoral photographs of the missing mandibular right central incisor area show normal healing of the alveolar bone around the mini-implant (Figure 7A). One year after debonding, the restoration was well maintained, and the width and contour of attached gingiva adjacent restoration was more favorable (Figure 7B).Figure 7
