“Ovate Pontic”- Esthetic Enhancement of the Anterior Restorations

Dr. Shruti Mehta*, Dr. Dipi Kohli**, Dr. Mira Patel***, Dr. Viral Shah****.

Esthetics is of prime concern when replacing any anterior tooth. The prosthesis should resemble the adjacent natural tooth closely. Out of many types of pontic designs, ovate pontic may serve the purpose of providing good esthetics and phonetics. It will maintain interdental papilla and help to maintain good gingival health. In addition to it ovate pontic has an advantage of immediately replacing the missing anterior tooth.
