Introduction: This article describes an efficient chairside method for immediate fabrication of an esthetically superior pontic, compared to an acrylic denture tooth, prior to extraction of a tooth due to any underlying reason. Discussion: Taking an impression of the patient's own individual tooth permits the orthodontist to create a pontic with precise anatomy, size, and esthetics. The total time for the procedure of pontic assembly is less than a few minutes. Conclusion: This small chairside procedure of pontic fabrication can go a long way in delivering esthetics as well in building up the confidence of the patient and that too in a very short time period. Clinical significance: Simple, easy, cost effective, and time-saving chairside procedure.
