Kumbuloglu O, Ozdemir N, Aksoy G, User A - Eur J Dent (2007)

Bottom Line: The restoration has served the patient for 2 year, seemingly without discomfort, and it has not required any maintenance.The patient has kept up with his oral hygiene.Although additional clinical experience is necessary, fiber-reinforced composite materials can be used in combination with a lithium disilicate ceramic material in fixed partial dentures.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: This clinical report describes a relatively simple but esthetic, non-invasive and functional prosthodontic treatment option for a patient with missing tooth.

Methods: A patient with a missing maxillary left canine was non-invasively treated with a fiber reinforced composite (FRC) bridgework with an all ceramic (Empress II, Ivoclar Vivadent, Schaan, Liech-tenstein) pontic design, using laboratory technique.

Results: The restoration has served the patient for 2 year, seemingly without discomfort, and it has not required any maintenance. The patient has kept up with his oral hygiene.

Conclusions: Although additional clinical experience is necessary, fiber-reinforced composite materials can be used in combination with a lithium disilicate ceramic material in fixed partial dentures.
