Single-stage implants are frequently used, but their use in the anterior dentition has not been widely published. The purpose of this case report is to present the esthetic result of a single-stage implant to replace a maxillary central incisor, and to demonstrate the unconventional use of a 15-degree angled ITI implant. A 15-degree 12-mm hollow cylinder was placed with the angle reversed facially. The emergence profile of the adjacent roots was matched with the transmucosal portion, turning at the osseous crest. The implant was restored after 6 months with an ITI gold coping and transverse screw-retained crown. The gingival margin and the papillae were shaped by the transmucosal portion and the restoration. To date, the implant has been loaded for 24 months with an ideal soft tissue esthetic and radiographic appearance.
