This study presents a case of replacing two maxillary primary canines and related impacted permanent canines with two single implants, in conjunction with grafting lost hard tissue. By using immediate postextraction implant placement and provisionalization protocols, the stability of the implant was ensured while bypassing the bony void created by the removal of the primary canines. In this respect, a minimum healing period of 1 year was originally planned to evaluate the gingival esthetics before the final step was carried out. By the time the final restorations were fitted, the graft and tissues were stable. The time involved not only placed biology on the clinician’s side, but also helped the patient to spread the cost over time. In modern esthetic dentistry, harmonious results can be achieved relatively quickly when the prerequisites for esthetic success have already been met, but, as this case demonstrates, human biology often requires more time and patience for augmented hard and soft tissues to heal and mature.
