Treatment: Replacement of a anterior bridge replacing the patient left front tooth. New porcelain crowns for his canines. Minor tissue re-contouring. Level lower anteriors.
This gentleman came to our office with the intent of replacing his worn anterior bridge. The teeth were worn and chipped and there were a couple of different shades. So we elected to bleach his teeth to lighten the shade, and then to replace his bridge. Our patient was not interested in replacing the missing tooth with a single implant. So we removed his old bridge and fabricated a new one. Not quite as simple as that sounds, but if you use the right ceramist and are blessed with great patients, it really is more like fun than work. Our patient had great soft tissue so we were able to make the false tooth portion of the bridge emerge from his gum tissue just like a natural tooth. Over all a very well done case. One that he and I both are proud of.
