This patient needed to have a tooth taken out because of a cavity, and did not want a dental implant.  We reviewed her options for tooth replacement, and she ultimately decided on a dental bridge.  We worked with a periodontist to remove the tooth, then made her a temporary bridge that we used to help shape her gum tissue while she healed, so that her dental bridge would look nice and natural.  The final photo shows you what that kind of tissue-shaping process can do to make your new bridge look amazing!
