Introduction: This clinical report presents a clinical case scenario of a Saudi young lady who presented with multiple heavily restored teeth, multiple missing teeth, and a mutilated occlusion. The patient’s chief complaint was “I want to restore my mouth to be able to smile and eat well”.

Objective: The purpose of this presentation is to emphasize the importance of interdisciplinary in the management of such complex cases and how endosseous dental implants can and did change the patient’s quality of life (QoL).

Materials and Methods: This clinical report describes a step-by-step scenario for the dental rehabilitation of the patient using the staged approach and endosseous dental implants. The effect of the installed implant-supported prostheses on the patient’s quality of life (QoL) was measured through a subjective scale filled by the patient before and after the treatment.

Results: Significant patient satisfaction and improved quality of life were achieved as assessed by the patient; there was a noticeable positive effect influencing the patient’s esthetics, phonetics, mastication, comfort, self-esteem and oral hygiene.
