This case report presents the correction of severe alveolar ridge atrophy due to congenital and iatrogenic factors. Implants that compromised the natural adjacent teeth and overall esthetics for this young patient were removed and replaced after significant vertical bone and soft tissue regenerative procedures. A treatment combination of bone graft particles, a nonresorbable membrane, and enamel matrix derivatives was used. Significant and stable improvement in esthetics was achieved 12 months after final prosthetic restoration, demonstrating the ability of such a combined treatment to correct the esthetic deformity, improve the health of the adjacent natural teeth, and allow for successful implant treatment.
