This person was missing his upper lateral incisors and had unsightly gaps as a result. Many people are left with spaces created by extraction of teeth due to severe catavities or periodontal [gum] disease.
In those circumstances, the treatment of choice may be a fixed bridge [an attached
group of crowns (caps)] to replace the missing teeth.
Several teeth are prepared [cut in to a conical shape] to serve us abutments [teeth to which the fixed bridge is attached] so that the Pontics [crowns
that replace the missing teeth] are held in position.
This procedure usually takes 2-4 visits depending on how extensive the situation is, and its completed when the bridge is permanently cemented on the abutment teeth. The most common fixed bridges are made with porcelain fused to metal for both strength and aesthetics. Call our office if you think you’re a candidate for this type of procedure.
