Abstract

Rehabilitation in maxillary anterior teeth loss is a serious challenge in the field of dentistry. Some patients may not wish to undergo implant treatment because of economic inconvenience or the tendency to avoid surgery. In such cases, rehabilitation with full crown teeth causes important amounts of loss material. Fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) bridges are a serious alternative to conventional treatments and present considerably more conservative solutions. This article describes the clinical technique and a 6-month follow-up. The patient had lost the maxillary anterior tooth after trauma. The adjacent teeth were periodontally healthy and had no mobility. The main advantage of this FRC bridge treatment was the improvement in oral hygiene with supragingival margins and the loss of minimum tooth structure. In particular, when the patient's teeth are used as a pontic, the esthetic results are very good and patient satisfaction can be achieved.
