Prosthodontics, in general, aims to rehabilitate the masticatory function of the patient, as well as the stomatognathic system, maintaining his or her individual facial characteristics. The immediate removable complete denture is placed immediately after extraction of the natural teeth and allows adaptation of the patient from the dentate state to the denture, until the definitive denture is placed. When an immediate complete denture is fabricated, esthetics plays a fundamental role and thus the assembly of artificial teeth can be performed maintaining the same position, alignment and arrangement of the remaining anterior teeth, providing a natural and esthetic appearance to the denture, thus the transition from the dentate to the edentulous state is less noticeable. This paper reports the case of a patient who needed oral rehabilitation with an immediate upper complete denture and presented favorable smile esthetics of the anterior teeth, which allowed the preservation of alignment, position and arrangement of natural teeth during the assembly of artificial teeth, maintaining and preserving the esthetic individuality and facial harmonization, meeting the patient’s desire and expectations.
KEY WORDS: aesthetic, immediate, artificial teeth, dentures.
