The previous article showed a 4 year review of an implant retained bridge. The results are excellent but the work involved is lengthy, surgically demanding and at the more expensive end of dentistry. On occasions implants are our only restorative option and they certainly offer excellent long term stability and predictability.
This case, however, is at the other end of the bridge spectrum and shows the excellent results we can achieve with directly placed fibre reinforced composite bridges. This case shows a missing lateral incisor being replaced with a direct bridge of this sort. The work is completed in one visit with no drilling to the adjacent teeth and costs a fraction of the implant alternative. It is not as strong as an implant retained crown or bridge but it is repairable in the mouth and can be redone several times over many years before it matches the cost of the implant options. Some times less is more.
