In the maxillary arch from premolar to premolar, 26 single dental implants were inserted in fresh extraction sockets and immediately provisionalized. The bone-to-implant gap was grafted with a bovine bone mineral. After 3 months, definitive ceramic crowns were placed. At baseline and after 1 year, the soft tissue horizontal width, mesiodistal papillary level, midfacial gingival level, and pink esthetic score were evaluated. No statistical differences were found between baseline and 1 year for all parameters. Immediate singletooth implants, with immediate restoration, are capable of maintaining the soft tissue contour and esthetics compared to the pretreatment status.
