The successful management of hopeless teeth in the anterior esthetic zone has become more challenging. Furthermore, extraction of anterior teeth has a far-reaching impact on an individual psyche. Immediate dentures and many other approaches have been described as a temporary replacement to give a feel good effect to the patient. This article presents a novel technique for provisionally replacing the anterior teeth with the use of unsalvageable natural teeth which are going to be extracted as biologic preextraction prosthesis. Furthermore, treatment with this technique led to overall improved esthetics, psychological wellbeing, and reduced treatment cost.
