Direct Fiber Reinforced Bridge
From inception the Styleitaliano philosophy has been one of realistic and achievable results that are reproducible. One of my main aims has been to reinforce these core values into my daily practice and hopefully to the benefit my patients.
A lovely 64 years old female patient was referred to myself from a colleague regarding a grade 1 mobile lower left central incisor and non – pulchritudinous defective crown that had been causing multiple problems over a number of years. All possible treatment modalities were discussed and the patient decided she would like the tooth removed and replaced with a provisional composite bridge while the necessary healing took place.
