Purpose: To evaluate the esthetic result of immediately placed implants with immediate provisional restorations in the anterior maxilla using the pink esthetic score (PES) and white esthetic score (WES). Materials and Methods: The records of patients were evaluated retrospectively. The evaluation was carried out by two examiners using 12 evaluation criteria. Results: The average PES value from the evaluation of 53 images obtained from the 53 selected patients (22 men and 31 women) was 8.63 ± 2.4 (range, 1–14), whereas the average WES value was 6.92 ± 1.67 (range, 2–10). The mesial papilla had the highest average PES (1.39 ± 0.4) and the distal papilla had the lowest PES (0.87 ± 0.54). Texture had the highest average WES (1.54 ± 0.34) and tooth shape had the lowest average WES (1.25 ± 0.43). Conclusion: Treatment with immediate implants providing immediate provisional restoration in the anterior maxilla yields good clinical esthetic outcomes, as assessed by PES/WES values. The PES and WES values showed strong intraexaminer agreement, but weak interexaminer agreement.
