Maxillofacial prosthetics refers to all artificial prosthesis that restores missing parts of the face due to trauma, a congenital anomaly or surgically removed, the reason being either malignant or benign neoplasia. The objective of this article is to reveal the final rehabilitation of uniocular phthisis bulbi, a clinical case treated with a scleral cover shell in a male patient whose cause of defect was trauma. These prosthesis are the most difficult to perform, with good results, because they try to reconstruct a mobile organ with a non-mobile prosthesis. Maxillofacial prosthesis increases the patient’s quality of life and helps enhance their confidence. Patients who have been rehabilitated in such a way are ready to be integrated again in society.
