Figure 1: (a) Inadequate clinical crown of 34, 35, and 38 for crown preparation and less inter occlusal space to accommodate pontic. (b) Internal bevel incision of abutment teeth was continued as two parallel incisions on the crest of edentulous area and tissues between these parallel incisions were removed. Osseous reduction on the crest of the alveolus was done to increase the interocclusal space and ostectomy in relation to 34, 35 and 38 to increase the clinical crown height. Sufficient area was also provided on crown to accommodate minimal dimension of biologic width
