Abstract

In modern dentistry, fibre-reinforced fixed dental prostheses are considered a useful alternative to classical metal-ceramic restorations. This method allows a conservative approach for replacing missing teeth that overcomes some of the drawbacks of conventional prostheses. Our patient required extraction of tooth #46 because of an apical lesion of the mesial root, and underwent extraction by hemisection. After healing, using the superior properties of the combined fibre/composite, an adhesive bridge restoration was applied with support from the distal root of tooth #46 and teeth #45 and #47.
