Socket shield technique (SST) and subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) following immediate implant placement with provisionalization (IIPP) had been advocated for peri-implant facial contour and gingival architecture preservation.

The results demonstrated a comparable and acceptable preservation of peri-implant facial contour between the 2 procedures after 2 years of function.
