Dentistry has undergone many changes during the past quarter century; however, no changes have been more profound than those in the field of implant dentistry. With the introduction of the concept of osseointegration by Per-Ingvar Branemark and continued research in this area, the success rate of implants has been continuously increasing. However, the cost and time factor for healing and tissue integration and the need for ideal ridge forms with good bone in terms of both quality and quantity have been drawbacks of implant dentistry techniques. Bicortical implants minimize these drawbacks and provide an alternative treatment of choice. This article focuses on the placement of a bicortical screw implant to anchor a metal ceramic crown in the missing right lateral incisor region and restoring esthetics with contouring and composite veneering in the upper anterior region of a 21 year-old male patient's mouth.
