Abstract The provision of fixed prosthodontic restorations that meets the patient’s functional and aesthetic demands can be challenging, especially in the anterior maxilla. It requires close communication with the technician and knowledge of the available options. This article will outline the options for pontic design and focus on the ovate pontic, which has the potential to provide the most aesthetic outcome. This should equip the practitioner with the knowledge as to which pontic to prescribe if such a challenge arises.
