Treatment: Replace two three unit anterior bridges with two dental implants and single crowns.
This patient came to us several years ago with two very well done bridges replacing her maxillary lateral incisors, which she had been born without. Replacing these missing teeth with bridges was the best option that was available when she had them done, and they were well done, so we left them. Over time, the bridges began to wear and needed to be replaced. The porcelain broke on one of them, forcing the issue. She wanted to get rid of the bridges and explore replacing the missing teeth with dental implants. Dr. David Hunter placed the implants, and with the help of our master ceramists, we were able to restore and replace the missing teeth in a way that you would never know she had anything but great teeth. And they are single teeth, so flossing is normal, etc. This was a great team effort! — Dr. W
