Should I get an implant or a fixed bridge for the front of my mouth?

Monday, May 16th, 2011
Q.

I have been advised by my dentist that an implant for one of my front teeth that has been removed will offer no significant aesthetic or functional benefits to a fixed bridge, given that I am having the teeth adjacent to the front tooth concerned crowned as part of a wider cosmetic dentistry plan. My dentist says that the additional costs associated with an implant would not be justified in my particular case.
Do you consider that the aesthetic results from implants are always more natural than the potential results from a fixed bridge-I am a little apprehensive about a fixed bridge looking false and “joined up”
Many thanks

My new bridge doesnt match my other teeth again. What is your advice?

Q.

Hi. I had an old NHS 3unit bridge that was done very poorly and didn’t match in proportion with my other teeth. I recently had this unit replaced by a private cosmetic dentist and she promised that she would have the teeth match and be in proportion. I went to have to bridge fitted and the bridge looks like the one before, however as I was completely numb I couldn’t talk, and she was running late and rushing, she fitted it and I promptly left. I rang the next day to see if something could be done and I think she may ‘shave’ one of the teeth down. Do you know were I may stand in getting the bridge redone as i’m not happy with it and I feel she hasn’t kept her promise? I paid £2000 and could never afford this again I saved for a very long time just to have it fitted again. Thankyou.
