Restoring the digit with a esthetic prosthesis with passive function will enhance patients’ acceptance and confidence. A 23-year-old female patient reported to the Department of Prosthodontics, Regional Dental College, Guwahti, Assam, India, with a chief complaint of a partially missing index finger on her left hand. She wanted to get it replaced because she was getting engaged. The prosthesis was inserted, and a wide silver ring over the margin of the finger prosthesis was placed at the mid part of middle phalanx to disguise the junction line. The patient expressed high satisfaction with the end result and the retention of the prosthesis.
