“A” came to us with concerns over the discoloration that had occurred with her “Maryland Bridge”. Maryland bridges are a false tooth with metal wings that attach to the backs of neighboring, support teeth. In “A’s” case, there was a distinct graying of the support teeth and the bridge had come loose. Older composite bonding that was done on another front tooth had yellowed over time. “A” wanted a more beautiful smile. I replaced the old, metal supported bridge with an all ceramic bridge.
With no metal involved, the ugly, dark gray color is eliminated. The old composite bonding was replaced with a veneer. “A” said she was very pleased with the result. This particular case took only 2 appointments to complete.
