Implant-supported prostheses are a regularly-practiced tooth replacement option in the contemporary dentistry. The decisive prerequisite for successful long-term implant osseointegration is an adequate bone volume at the implant site. The sufficient alveolar bone width and length are required for the placement of the implant of an appropriate dimension. The vertical bone grafting is a difficult procedure due to comprised revascularization resulting from the distance between the bone grafts to the alveolar bone foundation. The careful selection of patient and adhering to the meticulous surgical procedure increases the possibilities of successful graft integration. This case report explains the process of vertical bone graft in the esthetic anterior maxillary region.
