Fabricating a partial extraoral prosthesis is challenging, especially partial nasal prosthesis. An extraoral prosthesis can be successful when patients can socialize without fear of being noticed with an abnormal facial defect. Homogeneity, subtle textures, and color match are essential to fabricate successful extraoral prosthesis. In this case report, a 69-year-old Caucasian female patient presented with a partial nasal defect. A silicone partial nasal prosthesis was fabricated to replicate the missing structures.
