Implant placement is very common these days, esthetic requirements and expectations of patients and dental implant specialists are increasing to a level where both demand a restoration that mimics the natural appearance of a natural teeth. Bundle bone loss accelerates dimensional bone changes which make it impossible to achieve natural looking implant restorations. Multiple techniques have been used to decrease or repair the effect of physiologic bone resorption elicited by extracting a tooth. All soft tissue and bone tissue management have been successful to an extent but haven’t reached the ultimate goal, on a consistent level. Partial extraction techniques are showing promising results as the concept of retaining a part of a tooth in areas where it is known to have dimensional changes as buccal plate. The Socket shield have revolutionized the immediate implant placement in preserving the bucco-facial and alveolar ridge high. This case report demonstrates implant placement using immediate implant in direct contact with socket shield that maintained both soft and hard tissue with proper pink esthetic score.
