Esthetic implant therapy can be challenging in the anterior maxilla, and meticulous treatment is often required to deliver optimal esthetics. Close collaboration between surgical and prosthetic team members using the novel approach of prosthetic crown lengthening helped camouflage a shallow implant platform location, providing the proper gingival frame for esthetic restorations. This case report presents an interdisciplinary approach that included ridge augmentation, second-stage crown lengthening, and prosthetic soft tissue manipulation to address an implant placed too shallow in the alveolus of an extraction socket.
