Details about Case:
This is an example of Bridge done in the early 90’s by today’s standards the esthetics are not great. The patient had severely damaged the tooth as a child and after many years it had a chronic infection. The tooth was removed and allowed to heal. An “old school” Porcelain and Gold bridge was placed the standard procedure at the time. Today a Dental Implant or a Bridge made with only Porcelain for excellent esthetics would be used. Given the very poor esthetic appearance prior to removal of the tooth the patient was very happy with the esthetic change.
This case illustrates the improvement of materials and techniques over the last 20 years
