Bridging Missing Teeth

This young lady had suffered the discomfort and aesthetic challenges of a removable metal partial denture since she was a teenager.  A very common problem for people is the natural abscence of the smaller lateral incisors.

We were able to assess the situation, along with detailed x-rays and examination. Traditional bridgework would be damaging to the previously untouched adjacent teeth so we elected to use bonded zirconia bridges.  Zirconia is extremely hard and can be made in very thin sections.  This meant that the front teeth didn’t need to have much done to them and the bridges are glued on to the adjacent front teeth.
