Young patient missing teeth
This young patient had congenitally missing lateral incisors. After orthodontic (braces) treatment, she wore a retainer that replaced the missing teeth. It was removable and had a wire that showed from the front. It was unaesthetic and foreign in her mouth. She was treatment planned for implants and crowns but was too young for the procedure when the braces were first finished. Her parents wanted something more permanent and aesthetic than the retainer. With no tooth preparation, we were able to make these Maryland Bridges that are bonded to her existing teeth. If there is insufficient room, than a small amount of tooth has to be removed. This can usually be done with no anesthetic. After the procedure she can smile confidently and eat with minimal restrictions on her diet. As you can see, the results are amazing and looks totally natural and beautiful. There was a small amount of bonding done on the adjacent cuspid tooth to close space and make the teeth more symmetrical and pretty. The patient and her parents were very pleased with the outcome.
