Individuals with cleft lip and palate may experience problems with feeding, speaking, hearing, and social integration that can be corrected to varying degrees. This case report presents a method of restoration of form, function, and esthetics in a 14-year-old patient of cleft palate fistula. Interim hollow obturator was added to the lightness of the prosthesis along with adding resonance of speech and preventing regurgitation of fluids. Porcelain-fused metal crowns were also added to the overall esthetics of the patient that is one of the primary concerns during adolescence.
